Same file format just different ways of applying them. You can use the light problems (sphericial) in LW by using the Image World Plugin or a skydome ball.
The square versions can also be used but you would have to map it onto a cube as your skydome. Ive done that and morphed the cube into a sphere.

ImageWorld uses Angular Maps only.
For Spherical maps, use Texture Environment plugin.

You can use HDRShop 1.0 to convert any type to any type using Panoramic/Transformations menu.
