You'll pretty much have to use the 2e to 3e conversion booklet/pdf and go in reverse if you really feel the need to follow a format of some kind.

As 2e is very much simplified compared to 3e, this should not be much of a problem at any rate. Multi-classed characters will simply become 2e multi-classed or dual-classed with the same amount of xp divided accordingly. As to converting creatures with templates you'll have to be a bit more creative. Half-whatevers and fiendish whatevers(and similar things) will simply become unique creatures in 2e, with abilities that you will have to set. Just follow the guidelines for the creatures. Spell-like abilities will simply transfer over. You might wish to have some abilities function as they do in 3e+. You are the dm, and ultimately things will be how you want them to be.

Because of the huge amount of variety that 3e+ offers there can be no hard and fast rules that will cover everything. You can of course always post your conversions here for feedback.

Not to mention the amount of magical items 3+ characters have! I just throw most of the multi-classing into one class on Humans and put prestige levels in the class they are most closely related too.
