While it is technically possible to transcode an mp3 to a flac file, there is no point. Flac files are lossless, mp3s are lossy. You won't gain any sound quality. You should go re-rip your CDs using EAC into .WAV (with correct offsets and audiophile settings, you could find these settings for your drive on the hydrogen audio forums, gooooogle) then use Flac Frontend to encode to .flac. I prefer to encode my flac's at level 5, there is almost no size difference in going to level 8 and it takes much longer. Besides, if you have an audio collection in flac, you generally aren't worried about file size.
