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.

Yes, I used Polyphone to convert the Rock-Drums120 RD to sfz, worked fine.

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.
