Sorry, you have to replace it. That means removing it from the ceiling, but don't do this yourself if you don't have good balance or the right stepladder. If you are a senior or low income, try calling the fire department.

I assume you have changed the battery, which is the usual reason for it not stopping beeping. If you have and it is faulty it will have to be replaced.

If you haven't tried replacing them, then that is most likely your problem.

My smoke detector didn't stop beeping, so I disconnected the whole thing and now the wires are the only thing there and it still keeps beeping. Is this possible?

As I understand it, hardwired smoke detectors also have a back up battery. If you haven't already, try and remove the battery. I hope this helps.
