Im curious to know if transcoding from Wavpack(Lossy) to MP3(Lame) will affect the overall quality of the file and also can i transcode to 320Kbps setting for Mp3.

You are converting from a lossless to a lossy format. It will lead to some loss of quality. If you use Lame it will not be significantly audible.

From the original post it is clear that the OP is converting a source that is lossy.

Even worse. Encoding from one lossy format to other degrades more the quality.

On the contrary, the few results that I have seen posted for lossy-lossy transcodes seems to favor some combinations of two lossy formats vs. same-to-same. In particular, formats like lossy wavpack seem especially suited to transcoding to more conventional lossy formats like mp3.
