First off, you should stop using EPS and move to AI. But to answer your question: it depends on what you want to do. You can "Place" EPS files into a new document easy enough using File > Place.

Have these files been created in Illustrator?

If so, then they have 2 "forks" in one file: an EPS and an AI. The EPS fork just contains stuff that Illustrator 3 could handle (20 years ago). Everything else, your effects, live objects, brushes, whatever, is outlined to shapes.

The AI part is fully editable in version you specified when saving the file.

 

So now you Place those EPS files. When you do that, you access the EPS part of the files. So you basically ruin your work. Is that what you want to do?
