That is correct Nates.
It should overwrite the .html file from my experience...
Maybe you should test it on an unused domain first, I wouldn't want anything going bad on your site while testing.
Although I have done it and it worked fine for me.

To test, would i just change one of the page files from html to php?
if i have a 2 page website (example) and one page is html and one php will the site upload with the two different file extensions? or should i change all the files from html to php to test?

I am not sure if you have a test domain but just upload a test template and put all the extensions in PHP.

If not, then you will just have to put your current site as all.php

P.S Back up your xsitepro site file first.

Nates,

In my experience the php files will just be uploaded when you publish the site and the html files will be overwritten. Just make sure you back up your site before you do this just to be sure.

Nates,

Sorry but I am not sure about that. I would suggest contacting affilorama support regarding this.
If it's just Google Analytics then it might be easier for you to back up your site and then test. It is easy to insert the GA code in the global scripts area after you've converted our site from html to php.

No its not GA i like using www.statcounter.com - i could try pasting the statcounter code in the global scripts as well though.

Nates,

Stat counter script might be similar to GA. You can probably just paste it on the global scripts area. If your site has 50+ pages it will be a pain to insert the code manually in each page. Your best bet is to use the global scripts area.
