1. bin->bit: without byte swapping, bit only has an extra header. You can simply add this header to a bin file and change the suffix.
2. bin<->mcs: https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/23174.html

Generate one bit file with ISE or Vivado, open this bit with UltraEdit or some simliar tool. You can compare the bit with a bin and learn what is a header.

A header is the same for same device except the creation time but that does not matter at all.
