Your monitor is either rec. 709 or adobe RGB. if you have it calibrated for one, use that as ODT. The deliverable will determine your final output color. photoshop can do almost any color, but I'd stay away from any non-RGB gamuts like CMYK which can cause problems so I'd convert them all to the project working space as resolve doesn't support .icc profiles.

I'm assuming you're grading the final in resolve. You'd XML from premiere to it, but you'd need to watch out for limitations in XML transfers(speed ramps, transitions, etc). If you were delivering rec. 709, you could use full online renders with scene detection to avoid speed change, transition, and varied framerate video issues. Premiere's project manager can render out framerate conversions. You'd want to do a test of your workflow before 100% committing to it.

Even if you were delivering a DCP, you would never see or use P3 since your monitor doesn't support it. The DCDM conversion will skip P3 and go right from rec. 709 to XYZ gamma 2.6 anyway. During playback of the DCP, the DCP device will determine its own native color gamut(which is usually P3 or rec. 2020) and convert using relative colormetrics accordingly.
