Is the updated freespace open engine anything like the modified Starlancer engine used in Freelancer or could it be made to look like that.

Yes. While only one standalone game has been released so far (The Babylon Project mentioned above), there are other total conversions being worked on, like Diaspora.

The engine is free to use for any non-commercial project. You can't sell anything made using it but beyond that, you can just download it and get to work if you wanted to.
