Can you please tell me if its ok to modify the elementary flows address from the EF database in order to match those of the OpenLCA LCIA methods?  For instance from  carbon dioxide (fossil)  to carbon dioxide, fossil? is this consider ok to do? since its the same flow?

Well, the EF database is meant to be used only in the context of EF, and in EF, you need to use the EF LCIA method, therefore, strictly speaking:
