Sadly, neither would be straightforward.
FBReader is "icon" driven and needs a mouse or a touch sensitive screen to drive it. You'd need to completely re-design the user interface for a machine like the Reader which doesn't have a touch screen.
The iLiad Mobipocket Reader would be even harder, because it's Java-based, and the Reader doesn't have a JVM.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings
