That's mostly common for marriage and people who believe they were "born in the wrong faith" and believe they were meant to be Jewish.

Judaism does not seek converts, but it does accept them.Conversion is a life-changing and very serious undertaking and a potential convert should think it over carefully.

Judaism does not proselytize or seek converts, but it does accept sincere converts.

Conversion is a life-changing and very serious undertaking and a potential convert should think it over carefully. It must not be done on a whim or because of temporary circumstances. One who converts is expected (from then on) to live as a Jew.
The first step would be, without outside help or influence, to get to know about Judaism. The person who felt interested should hang around a Jewish community in order to get a sense of whether Jews and Judaism as it is actually lived appeal to him/her. Also to do some reading. English-language books on Jewish thought and life can be found in Hebrew bookstores.
After that, the interested person would approach a Rabbi and ask about enrolling in a relevant formal course of study. This can last for several years and is an integral part of the process, since he/she will have to actually practice the religion.
Once that is completed, the convert immerses in a mikveh (ritual immersion); and, for uncircumcised males, undergoes circumcision.

Can you convert to Judaism and still believe in Jesus?

You cannot convert to Judaism and still believe in Jesus. To convert to Judaism you have to accept the Jewish law and all its 613 commandments - and nothing else. No deviations are accepted. Judaism does not believe in the possibility of a "son of G-d", since in Judaism G-d doesn't have a physical aspect, therefor He can't have any children. Judaism also requires one to worship G-d, and G-d alone without any intermediates. Judaism requires one to believe that the Messiah is on the way; not that he has arrived already.
