It should turn your card into a complete hd6970. There should be no differences, but I am no expert at flashing cards.

If only the bios flash could upgrade the memory modules as well. The 6970 uses higher end memory than the 6950, which will likely be the root of any failed bios upgrades.

If the GPU was not "broken" in the first place the yes it will but there may be a reason that your card was sold a a 6950 rather than a 6970.
