Is there any way that I can configure the jack on a Raspberry 2 into a microphone input ?
The goal is to gather the sound data from a microphone that I would plug into the jack and save it to a file.
No. The Pi's 3.5mm jack is output only. If you want to record audio you'll need to use a USB or GPIO based soundcard.
Required, but never shown
