The Feds, Gorn, Romulans, Klingons, Orions, and Tholians are "canon" or offical Trek races. The Kzinti are marginal - they were featured in one Trek Animated Series episode. The rest, Lyran, ISC, Seltorian, and Hydran were created by the SFB staff.
Interesting point you bring up about early SFB era conditions. The SFB folks released a module on that era - it's set as each of the empires is starting it's expansion. The Tholians and the Seltorians haven't reached our galaxy yet. And this is well before the ISC expansion. It includes three new (or is it old) races - the Paravians, Carnivons and Vudar.
Translating it to VGAP would be even more problematic than standard SFB - IIRC the largest ships were the dreadnoughts and standard carriers. However, if you were willing to work within those restrictions, it could be done ...
I'll dig up the module and do some homework.
