pretty much the title...

if I have 320 cbr MP3 files (I'm going to assume all from lossless sources), would converting directly from 320 cbr to v0 or v2 result in lower quality than if I have converted directly from lossless to v0 or v2?

Yes. Whether the quality is audibly worse is a different matter, though I would hardly be surprised to see someone demonstrate that in a double-blind test.

Maybe you can reduce the size of the files using mp3packer or simply re-encode from the original lossless sources if they still exist.

If the sources do exist then you might consider giving the artists their compensation if you haven't already done so.
