First off, you should NEVER alter the frame rate of the footage if you are making proxies. Proxies need to match the frame rate if you are to link back. You did find a nice work-around, so there is that. But don't do it in the future. Make 29.97 proxies, cut 29.97, online 29.97...then deliver 25p. Although really, you should be shooting in the frame rate you are delivering if you can help it.

(I thought "interpreting" the 29.97 footage as 25 in Premiere would slow it down..make it slightly slow motion...was that not the case?)

Avid does need...well...REALLY LIKE...the media to be Avid media...MXF. So yes, it would be good to transcode it. Why not transcode it to the matching frame rate so you don't have to deal with relinking issues? I'm not sure the "interpret frame rate" option in Avid will accomplish the same thing that it did in Premiere pro.
