If someone has already done it, then you can just install the theme, but if you have to do it yourself, then there's a lot of work involved.

You'd start with: Knowledge Base - How to start a new phpBB2 style
and refer to: Knowledge Base - phpBB2 Template Tutorial and Knowledge Base - Tools needed to set up and customise phpBB

and ask any specific question in the "Styles Development and Discussion" forum
The Knowledge Base contains solutions to many common problems!
How to fix "Doesn't have a default value" and "Incorrect string value: xxx for column 'post_text' " errors.
How to do a clean re-install of the latest phpBB3 version.

There is no way to convert a theme. You have to create a new one or one similar to what you want and modify it.
