Hi,

I have some A-Roll footage that I shot with a Canon 7D at 23.98 fps 1920x1080. Our B-roll will be shot with an Iphone. What settings should we use (and what app) to make the A and B rols the most compatible in FCP 7 ??

Transcode both to ProRes 422 before you do anything else....and then use a ProRes sequence.

The frame rate discrepancy can be a problem depending on your action; the iPhone shoots 29.97. There is an iPhone app called Filmic Pro that will shoot and then in-camera process its clips to 24. I've tested it and it works pretty well. If you're using an older iPhone with only 720p camera then you'll also have to bump it up to 1080 for your edit.

And of course as Shane says, transcode all to ProRes for editing on a ProRes sequence.

You also should be aware that the iPhone shoots "about" 29.97 fps.
