I am sure that vCenter Converter Standalone cannot achieve what you are looking for.

Depending on what version you have now, you could do this from the asdm. After upgrading and rebooting the asa automatically converts the old config to the new situation, so no need for a tool.

Just be sure to make backups first ;-)

you must upgrade from 8.2 to 8.3, if you have an older version you need to upgrade to 8.2 first. The upgrade is done the same way as always: reboot after pointing out the new boot image. When it boots 8.3 for the first time the configu will be automatically converted when it comes to NAT. An copy of your 8.2-config will also be stored on flash. See release notes for 8.2 for more details.
