XF 1.3 PHPBB import x 2?

I have two different phpbb3 databases that I want to import into the same XF 1.3 DB and i am wondering if this has been done before and if it would work with the current importer that XF provides for phpbb?

Yes, you can import two (or more) databases into the same XenForo instance.

You won't be able to retain IDs though (for the second one), for obvious reasons.
Thank you..

Second question when I import the first DB can i maintain my main admin account that is created by default by XF or will it be overwritten by the import?

It will remain.

I recommend setting up a test installation and doing at least one test import, to see how it all works.
