Question about Cycling
It can likely be done, but would not only cost much more than a good used geared bicycle - it involves a lot of skills and tools that you do not possess. Sell the bike and buy a geared bike.

I am not familiar with the type of bicycle but I assume the bike is currently a fixed wheel type - the type sometimes described as an ash track racer?
The problem when converting will be keeping the frame geometry correct while bending the rear forks to accommodate the wider axle of the wheel with a deraillier gear. It is necessary for the chain wheel to align exactly with the middle sprocket of the cluster.
The best option would probably be to fit a two, three or four speed hub.
