Topaz Denoise AI workflow recommendations?

I've been kind of tripping over myself with Topaz Denoise.

So, going forward, what would be the best recs for a  workflow for most images?

For my regular raws it's into Lr Classic, with it applying a custom profile for that camera body. Then to Denoise and save, then back in Lr. Or sometimes Ps.

And is there anything I should do BEFORE sending it? I seem to recall that sharpening, using contrast, or even cropping is a no no. But should I send pano or HDR or other stacking candidates to Denoise first, or after stacking/merging?

And I do a lot of IR. It doesn't seem to have affected Denoise much if I apply a color swap profile or BW profile before sending, but I haven't done enough to really conclude anything. Best to leave the image as shot before sending?
