What is Collation of View? Do you mean collation of some column in result or order collation?
For changing collation you can use '<column> COLLATE <collation name> '. It will convert column output to desired collation.

No, COLLATE  is like a function so acts only on preceding expression.
But why do you need to convert all? Your table is wrong or other problem? May be there is simplier solution.
