There are programs that pretend to do this. For anything beyond trivially simple material they are lying. It may come - but at the present this is a job for YOUR brain and musical skills.
There are programs that will help you. Transcribe! is the one I recommend. It will loop a section, slow it down, even attempt an analysis of the pitches playing at any moment. And other functions useful when transcribing.
Sadly, you can't. A .mp3 only holds data on digital audio, but not midi data. In an audio file, there are no terms we can understand like "play at this note" or "play at this tempo" but only data saying "having this amplitude run through the voice coil at this frequency". Midi on the other hand is musical data containing notes (no semi tones) and note length. This allows the file to be played on a daw (digial audio workshop) with a computer instrument (e.g. synthesizer), but even with a midi there is no bpm or notation such as staccato or slurs. But you can upload a midi file to a daw that supports sheet music conversions and you can add these in. Some daws do provide custom sheet music file types but none can be converted from digital audio, such as mp3.
