We are planning to change the site from ACF to Meta Box.
Custom Fields were defined with Meta Box / MB Custom Table.

During conversion, the fields in WPML options disappeared.

Are there any special features by Meta Box custom fields?

Best regards.

The Meta Box – WordPress Custom Fields Framework By is compatible with WPML.
It was last tested less than a month ago.

I'm sorry but not sure that I understand the issue that you have and the question that you are asking.
Could you please elaborate on the issue?
Where from the Meta Box fields disappeared?
The process that you did is not clear to me.
If the custom fields were defined with Meta Box, why did you use ACF?
Is the MB Custom Table another plugin?
Please attach some screenshot if it would help to clarify the issue.

But also, before everything, please take care of the following critical issues.

1. Update WordPress and all the related plugins.
I can see that WordPress is not updated on your site and also WPML and its add-ons. Also, the ACF and Meta Box plugins are slightly not updated.
Please update everything to see if the issue persists.

**** Important! Please make a full site backup (files and DB) before you proceed with those steps****

2. By looking at the debug info that you have attached I can see that your server WP Memory Limit is set to 40M.
Our recommendations are to have the following as minimal requirements:
- PHP 5.6 and above (this OK with your installation) with a WP Memory Limit of at least 128MB and more if possible.
- MySQL 5.6 and above.
Please follow this link for detailed documentation:
Is it possible for you to change those to the minimum requirement?
You may need to contact your hosting provider for that.
Meeting those baseline requirements is most critical before starting to debug and sometimes solves issues like you experiencing.
Most important is to raise the WP Memory Limit.
Please try to raise it before you contact your hosting company.
You can try and do it from the wp-config.php file in your WordPress installation.
Insert this code in that file.

/** Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

Add it before this line:
/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

Could you please perform that procedure and see if it help?
