Bottom bracket/crankset question

Hi everyone;

I know cars, not bikes when it comes to working on them, but I'm slowly learning. I have a question regarding bottom brackets/cranksets & a possible conversion.

I have a 2003 Rocky Mountain Metro which was born as a hybrid, but at this point I've somewhat converted it to my road trainer/CX bike. The current BB is an internal square taper 73x113, with a cheap, heavy Shimano Nexave T300 triple crankset.

Now, my recent purchase of a Jamis Comet tri bike, it came with an FSA Gossamer EXO crank setup, but I will be changing it to a Shimano R700 compact setup. I would like to use the FSA crank setup on my RM Metro. Is that conversion even possible? If so, which BB would I use and is there anything else I would need?

Thanks for any knowledge you can pass along.
