75 gallon fresh to salt conversion

Hi, I have had saltwater tanks before but its time to do it again. I have a 75 gallon freshwater tank with no inhabitants as of now but the beneficial bacteria is still alive in it. Now, my question is can the bacteria be converted? Because I have dry live rock chunks with no saltwater bacteria alive in them, so if I added salt to the tank as is, would it start the bio cycle on its own? Otherwise I have 2 green spotted puffers in a slightly salted fredhwater tank, could I add them to start the bio cycle? I've searched for plenty of info on this via the internet but not much useful info. Please let me know, thanks
