Yes, some versions of mCreator allow partial importing of older versions to newer versions, but it can be buggy and sometimes requires tweaking and rewriting of the code. As far as I know, it is not possible to downgrade a workspace to an earlier version of mCreator.

No problem. My personal tip, just make LOTS of backups in different file formats when using your outdated versions (Export techne files to java, tcn, and other formats etc, backup .obj and .model files when possible, stuff like that) so when you update to a newer version you can still find programs that can convert/port your models so you dont have to always start completely from scratch. 

As far as downgrading a project goes, its better to just move on to the newer version of minecraft and mCreator and wait for the rest of the modding world to catch up :/ (if you're playing with other mods that is)
