1. the dt50 is not an all tube amp... so no matter what you pick on the amp its still either a digital preamp or a modeled amp being amplified. (pod or no pod)
2. you will get the full digital model if you pick the full model... if you want to hear your actual tubes you need to select the preamp model.
3. if i recall correctly it will move to channel B (the 300 does this for sure)... but you will also lose any effect you place post... because the audio will not come back to the pod to be reprocessed before playing.
gotta run... i'm sure others will drop in and give you more ideas.

I think the easiest picture to remeber is that whenver you use the DT via Lin6 Link and channel A on the HD, the DT's digital preamp section is bypassed and whatether models you have on the A or common path in the HD will hit the reverb selection in the DT, then get D/A converted, then optionally routed through the DT effects loop and then passed to the configurable power amp stage. How the DT power amp stage is run depends on your default or MIDI configured 'voicing' I/II/III or IV settings selected in the channel A path of the HD.
If you selected power amp models on the HD you will get another power amp 'treatment' by the DT based on your selected voicing. The DT can't undo what you decided to model on the HD.
I use the mixer before a volume pedal at the very end as my main means to level different tones (mixer) and adjust to venue (volume pedal). This works OK for hobby/home use but is probably not acceptable for live performance because the volume pedal setting is remembered in each tone, i.e., you have to readjust for every new tone you select. Master Volume on the DT is much simpler but will change your tone. For real live use you are probably better off with a good attenuator to move volume of everything in one swift adjustment. I like the mixer at the end for a large range of clean, sound neutral gain adjustment for the full digital signal range.
