Will there be any quality difference in these 2 methods for converting SD/720x480/29.97 to ProRes422/1440x1080/60i?
by default, both of these methods produce new 1440x1080/60i clips with the SD scaled to 225%, ie. to fit the frame top to bottom, but with black bars filling the left and ride side of the HD frame – what do I need to to do to scale the SD by ~306% ie. To crop itself at top and bottom and and fill the entire HD frame?

Yes. The one you scale to a larger size will look worse. (They'll both look pretty crap actually)
