Do you want sound and microphone connections? I have never used 3.5mm to USB. From what I searched it may work. But if your system has bad grounding it may have buzzing. I had that once with USB speakers.

There's no simple adapter for that, it has to be a USB decoder, aka USB sound card. USB has digital signal so it has to be converted to analog with 3.5 connectors. Something like this at minimum: https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB5-1-to-3-5mm-mic-headphone-Jack-Headset-3D-Sound-Card-Audio-Adapter-ZJ/112776500938?hash=item1a4200d6ca:g:Uz0AAOSw0ehZ-MEx
