Nope. Normal audio CDs only store information at 44.1 kHz so even if you found a way to create a FLAC with a higher sample rate you'd only end up with a larger file for no benefit.

I'm not sure what MusicBee's default FLAC settings are, but they should be fine.

The good thing about FLAC is that being lossless you don't need to tweak a heap of parameters - you're going to end up with a file that sounds identical to what you started with anyway.

One that might be useful is a single number -0 through -8 (-0 being equivalent to --fast, -8 being equivalent to --best). -8 should give the smallest possible file but will take longer to encode.  The created files will sound the same - unlike MP3, M4A etc. where a smaller file means lower quality.
