using fixture Simulator VS. using ADS

I need to measure filters with terminations other than 50ohm, mostly inductive terminations. I was wondering if there is any difference between using the fixture simulator on the network analyzer or exporting the S-parameters to ADS software and adjusting the terminations there? 
One other question! When using fixture simulator, I load the calibration performed for 50ohm terminations, does it take into account that the reflection parameters change since the terminations are different but 50ohm sma cables are used in both cases?
