The hardware you need is called "FXO adaptor". They cost at least as much as a Pi , so you could buy them for your PC directly anyway ...
You need an ATA (Analogue Telephone Adaptor).
It needs to have a FXS port. S is for station ie a phone
A FXO port connects to a telco line (POTS/PSTN). O is for Office, the US term for what the UK calls a telephone exchange.
Ports on ATAs are named by what they connect to.
