How do I convert a layer 3 switch to a layer 2 switch? Can I just configure the layer 3 switch as if it were a layer 2 switch?

It is possible. Do not configure any Layer 3 properties by using “no ip routing” in global config. Also, you can do “switch-port mode access” for a particular port to act as Layer 2.
