I would like to do miRNA analysis for a dataset that I have found via an article. The pipeline I have in order to analyze the miR data requires the data file to be a .fastq file. However, the dataset I received is composed of .cel files. Is it possible to convert .cel datafiles to .fastq? Thanks

.cel files are affymetrix array file and .fastq are from sequencing as I understand. Look at the methodologies in the manuscript you have.

.cel files likely refer to miRNA data that was obtained from a microarray. You can't convert that type of data into fastq format which is sequence data.

So do I need another pipeline to analyze .cel file and make it a "sequence" file?

You can't make a sequence file from .cel. You will convert the intensity values into a numeric estimate which can then be used for data analysis. A primer here.

You first have to learn more about the method you are using before attempting analysis. No, microarray quantification cannot be converted to a file containing sequence data.
