Default Manual Footnotes to Automatic Footnotes

Hello there,

I have a Word document (book) (Written in Arabic) that will be placed into InDesign, but there are two problems, I hope someone could help me (I can't share the book, but I will share examples I have created to illustrate the problem):

Number 1:

Footnotes are manually inserted. The person who wrote it didn't used Footnotes feature in Word, instead he used superscribts and put it between parenthesis, then at the end of the document typed all the references.
Like this: (Numbers wrote in Arabic or as Word called it Hindi)

And the references are at the end of page not in the footer:

So I want to convert those manual footnotes to automatic footnotes, and should be between parenthesis as seen in images.

Some of the numbers in the reference are written in English numeral system (see below image). So I want first to change all English numbers to Arabic numbers first before I make the footnotes automatic.

I have attached two files, first one is the example with manual footnotes and the second after I manually made automatic footnotes (I didn't know how to make the footnotes between parenthesis). These files examples to illustrate the result I want to achieve.

Some Info:
  • I use Office 365
  • The book is "justify low"
  • My numeral system in Word is Context, so I can type both Arabic and English.

Thank you.
