Unfortunately, Fw does not support the .abr Brush format, though sometimes I wish it did :)
In fact, Fireworks has no brush [file] format; all brushes in Fireworks are procedural. Your best bet for finding different kinds of brushes are through styles, since they are the easiest way to save and load brushes in the application (you can save brushes in the advanced stroke dialog in Fireworks, but they are document specific). Of course styles usually focus on fills and effects...
what brush effects are u trying to achieve? some ornamental brushes or grunge brushes? yea its tough not having them in fireworks, but u can always use the vector tools and create them , the process takes time but could work
Yes, I was thinking along the same lines:
+ create a source object
+ Cmd+C > Cmd + V
+ on the pasted object change fills and blend modes, adjust
transparency maybe even use a custom patterned fill?
+ then do the same on stroke properties
A synergy of a bitmap-vector hybrid?
