Ideally any edit to tape requires genlock to both the tape machine & the Decklink card.
The last time I did anything to tape was many years ago and I didn’t edit to tape, Just fed the signal from the Decklink to the tape (Digi Beta or HDCam), set ext timecode on the deck and hit crash record and then played the timeline which carried the timeline timecode embedded in the SDI signal.
My advice would be to render a finished file and try that from a timeline or if you need multiple audio track use the separate Decklink Media Express software instead of Resolve> Deliver. Actually I’m pretty sure I used Media Express to do the job

Shot detection has been a feature of Resolve or a long time. I’ve used it a few times and it usually does an excellent job with maybe a couple of tricky shots to be manually adjusted. Highly recommend going to the manual and following the steps. There may be someone who covers this on YouTube but I did it with the manual’s help. There is also a way to auto split a file back into individual shots using an EDL if you have an EDL of the original timeline.

Although it’s hard to remember specific bugs from three years ago, I personally never ask for an AAF from Pr. OMF actually works for me all the time as the format hasn’t been developed for over 20 years so it is robust.
Perhaps an XML from Pr with original media might work better but for me an OMF is rock solid. I think you might like version 18.1 Everything about the Fairlight page has improved enormously since version 16. Basically everything has improved on all the other pages too.
As fo extra tracks, I sometimes find editors just repeat the same tracks to make things louder. Half the job for me is cleaning up and deleting repeats, guide, ltc etc etc. So it might be the editor? Worth asking how many tracks they have clips on

Well that’s a mystery then. I have only heard of render improvements and 18.1 is supposed to have sped up everything

Did you install the latest GPU drivers from NVIDIA? The other potential reason for renders not increasing might be a slow hard drive being the bottleneck. That shouldn’t make it slower but might make it impossible to render faster than before.

If Fusion is looking scary then another way to do it is in the color page. First grade your background shot. Then on the edit page Alt + Shift drag this to track three. On the Colour page mask the are you want the png to disappear behind. Select add alpha output and drag the alpha ouput from the last node to the alpha output. Put your png on track two and animate the movement. It should now go behind the mask. You might have to toggle the mask to get the inside not outside of the mask to overlay. There are other ways but this is a simple to follow way.

It means you have deleted the project file from the database. Media is not deleted for obvious reasons. You need to make manual decisions about deleting media including render files. However, before you delete the project file you can go to Playback>Delete Render Cache> All and that is how you clean that projects cache files.

It will help if you tell us how you went about the transfer that didn’t work. Also any details about your codecs both video and audio in case there is something about sample rates or bit depth that may be a contributing factor

10bit ? Audio bit depths are usually 16, 24 (standard) or 32.
I suggest looking at the Blackmagic forums and search for your problem. Others may have experienced this and reported it but if not, that is the way to send feedback, especially if you are using the free version. It helps to have Resolve version number and free or studio info in any bug report.

Personally I have not experienced any issues with mxf files from a range of cameras in Resolve including the FS7ii so I’m not sure what might be going on. I’m monitoring audio via the Fairlight CC2 card or prior to that the Decklink 4k card. How are you monitoring audio?
Also what is the sample rate and bit depth of the problem files? Number of tracks etc. Sony cameras are annoying in that they record so many audio tracks, even when they are silent. Just for interest try going to clip attributes on one of these problem files and turn off all but tracks with audio to see if it is related to having all those useless tracks trying to play.
