Re: PrPro to Resolve for final render- optimal codec?

I strongly recommend against the Apple Intermediate Codec, which is a lossy 4:2:0 codec that is similar to the old and rather crummy HDV codec.

Animation is lossless, so it has for a long time been considered a good choice for intermediate files, but the PNG codec in a QuickTime container tends to give files about half the size while still being lossless.

Another good choice is ProRes 4444, which is slightly lossy, but not to a degree that matters for most workflows.
