The steel lines are there in the event of an accident or fire. If you replace them with rubber, fire can burn it right through it and it can rip much easier in an accident.
Honestly, You can purchase steel fuel line in a spool. If you have a pipe bender and a double flairing tool, you should have no trouble. I do recommend replacing it with steel. Remove the old steel line, lay it on the ground, open the steel sool of fuel line and then take your pipe bender (most parts stores will lend you) and start bending the new line in the same directions. The only other thing you will need are the connections and to double flair the pipe at the ends. The worst part of the job is removing the fuel tank.
