Hey, this may of been mentioned before but is it possible to feed some program sheet music and have it convert it to midi?

Technically that is very easy. It is basically throwing away information :)
All sheet music programs I am aware of offer midi export to one degree or another.

What program do you use?

MuseScore has an option for that, but it uses a service on the internet.
You can export midi from MuseScore

My Niece needs a song done in 2 days. She just asked me last night. I figured first find the sheet music as I couldn't find the midi files anywhere for it, then use something to convert the sheet music to midi.

Usually I'd do it all but can't in 2 days.

What file format are you talking about? From the context I assume PDF.

Try https://audiveris.kenai.com/ but if, and that is a big if, it results in anything, make sure to double check everything it dir by ear.
