The car. buy one with a manual transmission. It will be easier. But if you must: rebuild the interior so you can add a clutch, modify the electrical system and change the ECM computer to switch it to manual, remove motor, install a different bell housing to the motor, then the manual transmission. Cut a hole where it might shift. Rewire the main engine and wire harness to adapt to a manual transmission, and finally driveshaft replacement, because a manual transmission isn't the same length as an automatic.

So, you've rebuilt the entire car for twice as much as it would cost to buy a stick shift. And then take it to the dealer to find out why it throws error codes and the check engine light is constantly on.
