FCPXguru has the right technique. To get the letters (rows) to appear gradually you could use a combination of wipes, crops and dissolve key-framed to your taste.

Thankyou in advance
I had hoped Blackmagic Design would release and Intensity Shuttle 2 with 4K and Thunderbolt 3 but it never happened.
If you can upload a short video clip with a lot of motion that will make the interlacing super obvious we could all try a few tests. You could then pick the best method and replicate it.
If you have Premiere Pro you should try a few tests with it. Premiere Pro might be a better option for your HDV work flow. The Intensity Shuttle is money well spent if you are editing HDV 1080i video using Premiere Pro. You can always sell it.
How many HDV tapes do you have? You could export to Pro Res and de-interlace or you could also try h.264 at 60P. You could even try Quick Time Animation. It does not hurt to experiment. Not sure of the final destination or how well FCPX and Compressor will handle the HDV files. After trans-coding does hair look like hair or rabbit fur? That being said I love editing HDV 1440 X 1080i on broadcast compliant hardware but I hate editing interlace video on the computer screen. The video link might be of some interest even though VHS is in the title and I use Premiere Pro you can use FCPX.

And if you simply need HDMI out, and your Mac doesn't have a port built-in, simply get a USB to HDMI adapter.
"FCPX does not work that great with 3rd party hardware." Simply not a truly universal statement, once again. But go ahead and flame on as usual.

Blackmagic makes the Micro Converter that I believe can translate HDMI to SDI and SDI to HDMI.
Why do you need 3rd party hardware? FCPX does not work that great with 3rd party hardware. The Intensity Shuttle is no longer listed on the BMD website. I imagine it has been discontinued.
I see a lot of wipes and slides.
You just have to apply the effects and transitions you like.
It is easy. If the Logo was created in Photoshop you simply import all the layers. You then apply transitions like wipe, zoom, slide etc to the individual layers.
In the first video you can achieve the same effect by using the crop filter to reveal each letter. It will be time consuming because you will have to manually key-frame it. That being said you might find a plugin on line that will do it or even a Motion template that does it automatically.

Did I do the time/space/labor intensive kind of 'professional' transfer or the quick/fast/get-it-out-the-door 'pedestrian' transfer? I'm satisfied with 'pedestrian' knowing full well spending 6x the effort doesn't translate into a 6x better quality product.

I agree with you. I see people use cheap USB capture card along with OBS, Handbrake, Virtualdub etc. The result is usually horrible even though they put a lot of time and effort into their process. The reason is the cheap USB capture cards have cheap hardware to begin with. My Hi-8 camera has a TBC built in. I can capture using the Intensity Shuttle at 10 Bit uncompressed. The result is slightly better than using the ADVC 110 DV-25 but the files are way to big. Most of my clients just want to see the video of their loved ones. Capturing uncompressed is not needed and like you stated the files size is huge. I like the fact that you mention playing back to CRT and HD monitors. Below is my setup. It is not the best but what you see is what you get during the editing process.
