SPDIF (or one of the other non-USB digital outputs) is definitely the best way to get audio from the Pod to your DAW - no additional D/A - A/D conversions.
as far as re-amping... the pod pro does not have that built in. it has a "dry out" connection, but that's just a tap off the guitar input, similar to a passive DI box. To reamp, you would need to send a 1/4" output from your audio interface to the Pod's Guitar In.
and FYI, the Pod HD 500 is capable of sending the dry guitar signal to an audio interface via SPDIF. there's an option in the system menu to have SPDIF send the final output or the dry guitar signal.
So, the only advantage the Pro has over the HD500 here is that it has the dry out analog connection. But if you can monitor your processed signal without using SPDIF, you could record the dry signal using SPDIF, then re-amp identically to how you would on the Pro.
