There is a way to convert MS data in Bruker ASCII data to MGF?

I have some files generated using the Bruker equipment, but only in ASCII data, and i have no access to the program to generate directly in MGF.

Depending on the content of the Bruker file, probably yes. For MSn spectra the MGF format is just a series of fragment ion masses with optional intensities, surrounded by BEGIN IONS and END IONS, as described here. So if your Bruker ASCII file has fragment ion masses, then you could translate that to MGF by writing a simple script or reformatting individual files using a text editor, depending on how many spectra or files you have.
