Only executables and libraries are really affected by the 32bit/64bit differentiation.
XAMPP/LAMPP is 32 bit, so there won't be a problem anyway. If you are 'going to Centos' (its what I have on my VPS's) some things will be in slightly differently named/located folders. There will also be different owners for the files so that will need to be watched if you use a tar format/parameters that preserve ownership.
Also bear in mind that XAMPP/LAMPP is not really a LAMP stack in the traditional sense. Its a bash script, that uses command line calls to execute the applications. Consequently the OS is unaware of XAMPP and any of its constituent parts. If XAMPP already has most of things you need, you are good to go. If you anticipate needing things that are not in XAMPP at the outset, it would be best to inquire now, as it were.
Good luck with your project.

Apache Friends does run on phpBB, but I don't know what it is hosted on... on the other hand - I personally run both phpBB3 and YaBB forums on both Windows (XAMPP) and Linux (LAMPP) servers. The phpBB forum runs in htdocs, and I had no problems installing it.
I need to clarify something - installing a "program" or "application" on an Operating System is not at all the same as installing a script. A script, by definition, relies on resources already present (installed). That's why they are called scripts, they 'tell' the application(s) what to do. In the case of phpBB, those resources/applications would be Apache (httpd.exe) and the MySQL database server. (things set in place by XAMPP). So nothing new is required to make them work generally.
I anticipate you should have no problems at all.
Good Luck, I'm sure it will be fine.
