On that note, I am looking for options to scan MF film with full borders, ie film brand/stock name etc.

All the solution I can find will mask those areas to keep the film flat.

So I am thinking to sandwich the strip in between 2 glass surfaces but of course that will create Newton Rings which requires specific glass to avoid the problem.

Does anybody have any experience with similar methods? Do you think I need 1 (a standard glass and an anti Newton one) or 2 anti Newton glass.

If I understand your situation, why not use a common mat cutter and cut out whatever rectangular opening you want in a dark colored mat board?
