    You simply convert them to a lossy format (MP3 or AAC). You can do this from iTunes or there are countless programs.

    Exactly on the money.

    If you have flac files, you may want to get some 3rd party converter and if they are 96/24 convert to apple 256 bitrate.

    You can convert them but it leaves copies of both files. I would like to replace them. Is there a way to replace them.

    Convert them in iTunes, sort by bitrate or file type, and delete the old versions.
