I have searched and found lots of guides on converting m4a to mp3 or how to play m4a in Fedora but I would like to convert mp3 to m4a is that possible? I am using FC6.

You can decode the mp3 to wav with lame and then encode them with faac - I'm not sure, but I think that you can pipe from lame to faad without decoding...
faac must be compiled with mp4 support, though. Then you can just change the extension from mp4 to m4a. keep in mind that in a conversion between lossy format, you're going to lore more quality...
