There is the option of having someone convert for you, but you can also get Finale Notepad which is free.

It is technically possible. You can export a music xml file from Sibelius and import that into finale (there’s a free watered-down version called Finale Notepad that should get the job done). Might need to be tweaked once converted though, as the conversion isn’t always perfect. Although, if you’re searching for someone to do this for you, it won’t be me. :P You could try posting in the “finale help” thread in the help board.
