You're asking for a walkthrough on Sound for Film!

To start you off, frame rate is the most important. But of course, on Linux,
we have more than enough tools to convert foreign sources into workable
formats. On something like Pro Tools, if there is a frame rate mismatch with
source and project, the track's apparent rate will be highlighted in red.

Formats, Codecs: You are limited to what the video syncing application
supports, but it's not a big issue since you don't need to worry about it.
Again, frame rate _is_ an issue and we assume it is taken care of properly
when converting.

(De)interlacing: Nothing to do with audio, but you should get to know it.

xjadeo + ardour isn't the most intuitive of workflows, but for some people
it just works :)
