ok, I did not know you would be leaving the phpbb2 board up for a while.
first, none of the MODs for phpbb2 will work in phpbb3
since you are going to change over anyway, just leave the updating of phpbb2 till you are ready to do the conversion.
I would not install and MODs to the new board until you have done the conversion though. I am not sure if the conversion will overwrite any MODs that you may have installed to the new board.
IF it was me, I would go ahead and install 3, update 2 then convert from 2 to 3 and then worry about MODs.
However, it is your board and I have no clue how many or what MODs you may want to install on your new board
