1. Yes
2. Convert the files to wav and then to mp3. I think you can use foobar2000 (which may go straight to mp3, I don't know) or mkwACT or flac frontend or Traders Little Helper. Go look in the Software FAQ for links
3. Well, you are going from lossless format (flac and shn) to lossless (wav or aiff) to lossy (mp3). So, of course the quality of the mp3 is going to be not as good as the original. However, a 320 kbps mp3 will be better than a 192 kbps one.
4. Check the Software FAQ.
