How to replace non-string parameters in arcgis function?

Our developers have exported a model built with ArcCatalog to a Python script.
This script has to run against various databases, so I would like to make the database name in the connection string variable. However, the connection is not a string. See the bold part below as an example. Now I have to repeat the same code in an if-statement every time. Does somebody know how I can call gp.FeatureClassToFeatureClass_conversion with variable database connections?

Thanx in advance!

if db == 'AGIS01':
