Just use the Cartridge port rom for F-Zero, it already has the base game and the expansion combined.

The cartridge conversion works all by itself. Just download the one in your appropriate language from the site, follow all of the patching instructions (if there are any, it's been a bit since I did this myself), and just run the new file on your ED64. I personally have mine named F-Zero X Expansion Kit 64DD or something like that, and the other one just named F-Zero X. I think there's a hack floating around that just overwrites the stock tracks with the DD ones, just know that this isn't that one.

Not sure if you can transfer the saves over, though. I just re-raced all the tracks at Expert (beating a cup on Expert immediately gives you credit for Novice and Standard as well for that cup).

you can, the f-zero conversion is using both, sram and cartspace saving.
with some of the 100% savegames, you can unlock the cars with this rom. too.
