For your FB/IBO application, here's what I have done with my
1- Open IB_Session511.pas
2- Find the line:
IB_Constants.IB_GDS32 := 'GDS511.DLL';
3- Change it to:
IB_Constants.IB_GDS32 := 'fbclient.DLL';
4- Save the unit, you can even choose another filename.
5- Insert this unit at the beginning of the application's .dpr file
USES clause.
6- Compile your application and test it.

Those are the steps that I took so that my applications use
fbclient.dll, instead of gds32.dll.
