Mixing up the order of the two syllables in a word is something most learners do. This makes the pair 适合 (shì hé) and 合适 (hé shì) annoying, to say the least. They mean more or less the same thing, but the former is a verb, while the latter is an adjective.
适合 is a verb meaning “to suit”, and must take an object.
Zhè ge gōngzuò hěn shìhé wǒ.
This job really suits me.
合适 is an adjective meaning “suitable or appropriate”, and is used in the same way as other adjectives.
Zài bàn gōng shì li chōu yān yǒudiǎnr bú héshì ba.
Inside the office, smoking is not suitable.
