Upscaling Refinement does the same but waits for resizing to take place. So, both could be considered post-resize sharpening.

I've seen from your posts and your (very good) guide that when there's not image upscaling (ex. 720p>1080p) you prefer to do not activate Superres in Chroma Upscaling but you prefer Finesharp in Image Enhancement, is because you do not think that SR in that case is visible/useful?

Another thing that really interest me is to understand the "real" difference between xbr-100 and 150, I could not find any comparison but just people preferring one or the other but without a real explanation of the reason.

720p to 1080p requires image upscaling. Any resize that requires upscaling is best used with SuperRes. Otherwise, you are stuck with Image Enhancements, where I prefer FineSharp.

SuperRes chroma is a different algorithm than SuperRes luma and I don't like how it looks. Also, sharpening the chroma layer doesn't do a whole lot to image quality, so I skip this setting. You could try it yourself and let your eyes be the judge. There is no right or wrong answer. What I posted were my preferences.
