What is this conservation of energy
 
Im very bad in basics to understand

here all fluids --> Bernoulli's equation we got P+1/2 v^2/2+rho*g*h
Here instead of p can we insert Internal energy U as we do in First law of thermodynamics.
If yes, then can we say that Internal energy can also be any energy acting inside a system (Microscopic and macroscopic).
If no why is that?

Sorry, could you state your question in a more clear way?

Bernouilli is valid only for fluid of constant density and in absence of any dissipative action...

It is enthalpy, not internal energy: Google Bernoulli equation for compressible flows or look corresponding section at
