No, there will not be any such software. In short, your friend cannot return to their original 128k quality files from what they have now.

The process you're referring to is called transcoding. Whenever you transcode across bitrates of a lossy codec, you lose information because the quantitization of the samples is different. So, quality was lost in the 128k -> 320k trancoding. More quality will be lost doing another transcoding from 320k -> 128k.

Maybe your friend is now at a financial point in their life where they can afford to replace the mangled files?
I live in Oregon, and I'm an engineer.
