You only need to toggle project format for tape ingest of import. With AMA its done by the AMA plugin but you need to check it gets it right via the source setting after AMA link is done.

I do a nice course that covers all this (VET Avid media management) but to help you out :-)

At the conform stage you will have a final sequence.
In a bin with no other content you can use the set bin display to show reference clips and you will then see every clip used in the sequence. Copy these out to a new empty bin. That's your conform list.
Make sure you have source file and source path column headings selected and sort by source path. You now have all the clips you need to AMA link sorted in order of original location and what clips you need.
AMA link those clips afresh (into yet another bin is good)you can try using the relinking option but in my experience an fresh AMA link is best. As each batch of clips AMA link check the source settings re I or P are correct (this can all be done while in the P project format)
If the setting is wrong change it.
When all AMA linking is done the sequence should have come back online. (you may want to have separated and consolidated the audio before all this as no point re-conforming perfectly good audio)
Use the refresh sequence option and select source settings to ensure the sequence reflects the AMA settings.
Check the progressive output on an external monitor to be sure no interlaced artefacts are present.
