No. They are two distinct series of components. TIBO* components
are VCL-control-compatible via TDatasource; TIB_* components are
"native IBO" and are not VCL-compatible.

At the data access level you can pass the SQL in its current state
between a TIBODataset and a TIB_Dataset (in either direction) using
AssignSQLWithSearch. By this means, for example, you can produce
reports using VCL tools, where the data originated in a TIB_Query.
