> ok, these are several complex issues compressed into a few little questions. The thing with HD nowadays is that there are various different formats and codecs around, depending on manufactorer and model of your camera. And each of them might require a different workflow. Some need extra software to be imported into FCP, others you can directly import through "log and transfer". "log and transfer" also offers ProRes 422 import settings. So the best is you google "camera model"+FCP+workflow and most probably you will find a workflow that matches your camera.

Editing HD alongside with SD means you have to first decide whether you downscale your HD footage which will cause a loss of quality, or you upscale your SD footage which will look awful. And that decision should depend on your output format, that once again would be either or. But of course you can always work in HD and later render an SD version, while the opposite is not a great idea.
