How to convert audio that is recorded with a monaural microphone and has sound only from the left side to monaural, or how to switch the left and right channels


When I check what was recorded in monaural, it was recorded only in stereo 1ch (Lch). Also, there is audio that was recorded incorrectly on the left and right. Is there a way to convert mono audio to stereo or swap the left and right channels?
