I think the only part that needs converting is the VMDK files which is
the virtual hard disc drive. I'm not entirely sure if qemu-img handles
split VMDK files, I would be surprised if that was the case. I also
think the image is a sparse one go by the s in two of the VMDK's file
name. You can all but try.

better place to have asked maybe is the qemu malling list available on qemu.org

have you (anyone?) tried running VMware Player under FreeBSD's linux emulation?
