MP3 files of the same bit rate, sample rate, number of channels and stereo encoding mode can typically be split, joined or volume-adjusted non-destructively with the below tools without the need for lossy re-encoding.
For more advanced edits such as effects, the audio needs to be decompressed in an editor like Audacity, so you must then accept any perceptible quality loss from re-encoding the MP3.
