if you had a filter system running in a freshwater aquarium and want to switch over to salt, would you need to change all the filter pads and such? do you also need to remove the active carbon from the filter as well?
You really should replace everything in the filter, Yes. I'm not sure what effects the salinity would have on the bacterias, but there's no sense bringing contaminants from the old tank into the new one. You would be far better replacing the filter medias and then adding filter squeezings from an established marine tank.
