You can do that in Wavelab. Maybe Wavasaur or Audacity for free? Format Factory is another option. http://www.pcfreetime.com/

Most audio editors should be able to convert from MP3 to WAV. I'm not quite sure if Audacity can, though...

Keep in mind that it won't increase the quality...

Not really worth the trouble unless you're loading the audio file into a DAW that only accepts wave files. You won't gain any quality but converting from mp3 to wav. All you'll get is a much bigger file.

But if your DAW only accepts wav there are several free audio converters around.
