With recent versions of FontForge, it is usually possible. In the FontForge Open dialog, make sure to check "All Font Files" and you should be able to locate the LWFN files. After opening, hit File->Merge Feature Info and select the FFIL. (If the FFIL contains multiple metric resources, you will have to select the right one manually.) There are other methods, but this is the easiest, if it works.
