How to properly crop/encode DVD films?

I've been googling and reading for about 6 hours now and I am getting information all sorts of ways.

I'm currently encoding two DVD sources for a friend. I generally only encode BluRay and upon reading about DVD's it's a different process apparently.

Source #1 is 720x576.
Source #2 is 720x480. I understand 1 is PAL and 1 is NTSC.

However, what's unclear to me is the proper method of cropping away the edges. Apparently it changes the picture, unlike cropping away the black pixels on a BluRay.

Ive read different things like cropping the sides and resizing to 480p.

I've also read things like leaving the original resolution/cropping/adding black borders via avisynth.

I've done several tests, but I just want to know the "BEST" way that the OG's in here would recommend. Before I take the plunge and encode many seasons lol.

I don't know if this matters, but it's getting encoded for a Plex server. However, I would like to make this the best for maximum playback compatibility.

I appreciate the help!
