If I put in a progressive source would Procoder tell me it was? And then what should I set my target as?
De-interlaced material becomes progressive, but it is not the same as a progressive source. De-interlacing, depending on the type, can seriously reduce resolution, especially if it is just throwing away or duplicating one of the interlaced fields in order to make the progressive output. A true progressive source will not throw away any of the detail.

I haven't used procoder in many years, but if I recall correctly, it does tell you if the source is progressive of interlaced.
