Although in my opinion these are a too complex topics to be referred to
simply as transcription, I think the Matlab Miditoolbox
(http://www.jyu.fi/musica/miditoolbox/) might be a first starting point.

There have been publications dealing with musical similarity in the
proceedings of ISMIR and MIREX (http://www.ismir.net/)
Naturally, all these metrics will depend on the definition of musical
similarity, and on the ability to (automatically) extract the required
information from MIDI or audio.
