[Frameworks] optical printing questions - working in B&W

I've also got a couple questions about printing but with working with B&W material. I've got some Super 8 Plus-X that was hand processed in D-76 to negative that I am interested in blowing up to 16mm.  There are some optical effects that I want to do with it (freeze frames and step printing). I've got some 7363 on hand to work with. I'm wondering whether it would be better to do a straight blow up to a stock like 7302 (or other stock) and then print from that onto the 7363 to create the effects and an internegative or to do it the other way around, & blow up to 7363 and then print to 7302? I intend to do some tests with the 7363 but would appreciate any advice on S8 blowups. My printing experience is limited and only with available camera stocks, I don't have experience with print stocks. I would also be interested to hear from anyone who has used a colour print stock to create tinted prints. Many thanks.

Briefly: I plan to shoot color neg and have work-prints made at a lab.  Next I want to optically re-print the lab produced work-prints with color filters but I have no idea what stock I should use in the optical printer's camera.  Oh, and I plan to finish with sound on film and I'll be shooting all 16mm. Any advice? Thanks, CH
