[Jackie Luffy] "If I zoom in on the VHS footage in Vegas to avoid the small black bars on the sides of the screen and to avoid the noise at the bottom of the screen (I guess from the capture) would that be a bad idea to do that? "
Since ou are not keeping the video it it's native DV format, do whatever you have to, to make it look better. Normally you wouldn't see those black bars on an SD TV but since you are rendering for computer viewing you might want to crop them off. Yes, it will make the image softer because you are stretching it. Only you can decide if the loss in quality is acceptable.
[Jackie Luffy] "Also would it be safe to save my footage as something other than 656 BY 480 so I can crop off the bottom and sides? Or would that just make a noticeable loss in quality?"
You want to stay away from odd sizes and some codes won't let you select odd sizes. You might want to render as 640x480 cropping off the black on the sides but I would not change the 480 height as that is a standard height.
