Photoshop brushes have a lot of options and most of these options you can use with Fireworks and the Fireworks brushes. You can import an image for the  brush Texture by scrolling the texture-selections until you see Other... and the images you can use are standard formats, so you could move brush-textures that way between Photshop & FW.

But you cannot get Photoshop brushes to work in Fireworks. You should though be able to create many brushes in Fireworks that behave and feel similar to the ones in Photoshop.

But - I would defenitely recommend you use Fireworks for VECTOR drawing. The "Vector Path Tool" in Fireworks is vector based brushes and offers vector based brush result editing...
That is something different than the normal Photoshop brushes.

On the other hand - for bitmap-editing - I think there is nothing really like Photoshop.

So if you need to retouch photos and need nice brushes for that, Fireworks would anyhow probably not be the best program. Photoshop is much more suitable for bitmap-image-handling.

On the other hand, if you want to draw stuff from scratch and need something between Illustrator and Pothosohop where the result is to suit the web immediately, Fireworks is the tool.

So there is no way to use the little graphic stamp-things that you can download at like the adobe exchange site (*.abr) in fireworks?

If you save the graphics stamp as a Gif or JPG image, you should be able to use it as a brush pattern in Fireworks.
But importing *.abr files into FW doesn't work.
