I am not sure if there is just one function for this.

For a class I took, I used Mathematica to fit a probability law to data 
using the method of moments. The Mathematica commands used are on the page 
below (it is the last entry at the end of the page)

The above is a basic mehod, and it sounds that you are looking for a 
complete package that does more extensive work in this area.
