There is a conversion script from vb to phpBB2 for sure, available at phpbb.com, but I'm not sure there is one already to go directly to phpBB3.

You can still first convert to phpbb2 and then to phpBB3. It should be as safe but a little longer. I never had to do vb to phpbb conversion, but some user here did with success.

Try searching a bit, you should find the threads in case you need more info.

I don't thinks there is an easy solution for attachments, unless the problem already was covered in the vBulletin 3.0.x to phpBB thread.

Try asking there, someone may have already found a solution. If not, I'm afraid you'll have to code something for this, worth it IMHO.
