I've not used FB2k, but I would think so.  Yes, you will lose quality, but 
you'll lose quality anyway since no matter how you do this, you're going to 
be reencoding with this type of setup, whether it be mp3>mp3 or mp3>vorbis. 
And since 128kbps mp3 files aren't terrificly great quality to begin with, 
it should be ok.  Best way to tell is to try it and see.

I'll let those more experienced with FB2k and win32/macos answer your other
