Quick note:

  • .gbf and .gbk are written in a rather verbose format which gives a lot of information about genes (including source of publication,sequence, the animal species and strain).
  • .gff and .gtf are tab-separated files representing the position of genes and transcripts (exons, introns, UTRs) in a reference genome (chromosome, dna strand, position for each element : it is an annotation of the genome)

You won't be able to do a lossless conversion I think. Such files usually have an identifier for each entry which gives you the name of the relevant gene.  I suggest you download the proper reference annotation as a .gtf/.gff, keep your files apart, and do some parsing on the identifier to match records in each file.

My bad, you can add all sort of data to the attribute field of a GTF file. Might be unwieldy though, depending on the number of attributes / number of genes you consider. Especially fasta sequences...
