Can I use a FlashPro4 cable to program the SF2 on the KickStart board?

I have a FlashPro4 emulator pod.  Can I use a FlashPro4 cable to program the SmartFusion2 device on the KickStart board?

No.  All you need is the USB cable that shipped in the box with your board.  The KickStart design has an integrated FlashPro5 circuit on the board.

The FlashPro5 circuit uses an FTDI chip that provides the JTAG interface to the SmartFusion2 SoC, as well as one USB serial interface that you can use to communicate with an application on your PC.
