    Firebase its not a good option for Parse migration. Using Firebase you should learn how to use a new technology, rewrite all your backend App, rewrite all the API communication (front-end) and manually migrate all your database data. Additionally I think the Firebase still have the same problem that Parse.com had, the vendor Lock-in. Parse Server now its open source and have, so you can enjoy a powerfull framework without locks! I recommend you use a Parse Server hosting solution.
