Yes, that is a possibility, but, as I read on another website; "In order to make a soundfont you have to understand the principles of sound synthesis, and a fair bit about how the physics of a soundwave work. You will also need to be familiar with recording techniques."
So, for me, not having that, I would prefer if PG-Music offer more of it.. But I guess they will do, little by little? Perhaps in package, like the RT? There is also another free program that some find better then Viena, http://polyphone-soundfonts.com/judownload/0_1502371177_e3tLlO/Polyphone_v1.8_win64.exe
Anyone tried it?

You can use Polyphone to create an SF2 GM set from the Band-in-a-Box Sounds SFZs.

SFZ you can use Keyswitches for Bends, slides etc.. but you can't do that with SF2.

If you use VSTSynthFont (1.096 / 2.096) - VST instrument as the default, that will load any sf2/gig GM or load a different SF2 GM for each track giving you more control over the sound as it's hard to find an SF2 GM that is perfect.

He is exactly right. The .SFZ is an old format for loading virtual instrument to in a virtual rack. In fact you could just upload your own VST into BIAB and have it play inside it.
