confirmation of 7D importing

I purchased a Canon 7D yesterday and would like to import a three-minute clip into FCP 7. Having done a bit of forum searches here, can I please confirm my understanding of what needs to be done?
1. The files are on the iMac as .mov and .thm files. I understand that these are h.264 files and are inappropriate for FCP.
2. I should convert them to ProResLT (as the intended use is on a DVD and played onto a projector screen at work).
3. I can use a free FCP plug-in from Canon in order to convert the files. (That said, if there is a better commercial product, I'd be very open to suggestions.)
4. The files can then be imported into FCP and the adventure begins...
Could I please ask if my understanding is correct or if I've misunderstood ? I've tried to read all the appropriate threads, but may have overlooked one. If I've misunderstood, if someone could refer me to an existing thread or website, I'd be very grateful.

I shot yesterday on my 7d & just dumped all the files into compressor, added pro res not LT to the group pointed it to where i wanted them when complete,and hit submit. Went out, two huors later they're baked. Deleted the originals. Easy as pie.
