I created a static QR Code. Can I turn it into a dynamic QR Code?

No. You cannot change a static QR Code into a dynamic QR Code because the URL of a static QR Code is encoded in the QR Code and therefore cannot be changed.

How do I find out if a QR Code is dynamic or static?

Decode the QR Code first. Dynamic QR Codes have mostly shortened URLs encoded and therefor they are less crowded and they are smaller than static QR Codes.
