More Info:

Is it possible to download a certificate in P12 format (instead of PFX) from Venafi even if you only see the PFX format available?

Yes, simply download the PFX file and rename it to a P12 file.

The reason, that there are two file extensions is historical. PFX was a Microsoft extension, while P12 was the Netscape one.
In the meantime both formats have been adapted to be identical, meaning that developers are able to use the .NET System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates namespace to work with both of them.
