First off, I apologise if this is the wrong forum to post the question in.

Also, I am asking on behalf of my 15 year old half-brother, and he lacks specific details over what equipment he needs.

He happily drew an image which may give people an understanding of what he is after.

The problem is the jack for the microphone cord is a stereo based jack(labelled 'Stereo') in which does not fit into the microphone plug on the computer (labelled 'Jack'). What is the device we need to convert the stereo jack to one suitable to fit into the computer?

(My half brother wrote the last paragraph)

I think you want something like this?

Used to be able to get them from DSE, maybe try Jaycar these days?

You want a 6.3mm socket to 3.5mm Plug. Mono if it is for a microphone probably.
I would try and get one that is a cable, because if you get an inline adaptor, it will put a lot of weight pressure on the jack and cause it damage.

What you need is a a simple adapter..

3.5mm -> 2.5mm or 6.5mm -> 2.5mm or 6.5mm -> 3.5mm (make sure its Stereo -> Stereo (not Mono))

Depending on the size of the both ends

Most likely you'll want a 6.5 mm-> 3.5mm stereo adapter which you can get from DSE or Jaycar or nearly any stereo/appliance shop.
