What's different between Premiere's own h.264 and QT h.264 encoders?

The encoder is always the same, namely Adobe Media Encoder. What you're changing is only the format, which admittedly is a bit confusing since that dropdown mixes up a couple of concepts which don't ...

Adobe licenses its H.264 encoder from Mainconcept, which doesn't do that well at low bitrates. x264 is pretty much the frontier when it comes at low size output for a given quality target, or quality ...

Every other frame corrupted when rendering with Adobe Media Encoder

As answered in this Q/A, the problem looks to be caused by the use of the CUDA renderer ("Mercury"). The solution is to switch to CPU-only rendering.

Convert 29.970030 fps .mp4 to 29.970000

The definition of "29.97" is correctly 30 * (1000 / 1001), which is 29.97002997. That's what you have. I don't know why do you think you need exactly 29.97000, but it's probably a misunderstanding.

Producing small H.264 files with Adobe Media Encoder vs ffmpeg/libx264
