do i need to cut off the rope seals not quite flush, but a little proud, maybe 1/8"? new out of the package they stick up probably 1/4" so when i lay the oil pan on, it lays up off the bottom of the block a good ways. i don't want to rely on cranking the oil pan bolts down to pull it together.

also, as for a clutch alignment tool, is it best to just remove the trans input shaft and use it?

Yes, and replace the seal in it while you have it out.

As far as the seal, maybe 1/16" proud.

Yes on cut off proud. The best advice I ever got on the rope is to use the gray silicone on the ends and offset the seams of the block and rope about 20 degrees. Works great and lessens chance of a leak.

do not cut the rope seals off.

Use something about the same round and using a hammer tap them down into the holders. They fit and the pan will pull down just fine.

Rope seals should be soaked in oil befor using.I used to keep some in a jar of oil.Never cut the ends.I have a clutch alignment tool but use the input shaft from a Ford car transmission on most jobs.
