Your understanding of conversion is correct = in order to have the same program duration across different frame rates, frame/fields get blended, dropped, etc. Some methods are better than others, Hardware based conversions of signal based formats tend to offer better quality in what is a real time process. Software based formats have a range of qualities.

MC has Mix and Match which does frame/field blending and is real time. Quality is OK, not great. Something for you and your clients to decide.

Speed up (frame for frame) is the best quality as there is no messing with picture other than playing faster/ Audio needs to have a sample rate conversion and potentially pitch correction.

What I suggest you do, is set your master TC above the sequence monitor to 25 rather than 24 and cut to your required durations. That way, when sped up, that's what they will end up being using speed up method.
