    I would like to use a dynamic mic with my computer which
    normally takes an electret microphone. How would i go about
    making a modification to achieve the above?

    Electret mics need a supply voltage, which your dynamic mic
    doesn't want to see. The supply voltage is usually on the
    "ring" part of a stereo connector used for the (mono) mic.
    So if you just wire up your connector using only the tip
    and sleeve, you should be OK.
