There is a difference between 24 and 23.976 (aka 23.98).
Keeping it simple, 24 is the cinema standard, 23.976 is the broadcast equivalent.
It is important to use the correct frame rate in the production pipeline, as glitches can arise if you make an error.
It's not important which one you choose. Just make sure all devices and settings use the same one.

60 is most often shorthand for 59.97. The two terms are used interchangeably.
59.16 doesn't exist as a standard. You may have some oddball footage there.
1. 24fps is what u see in cinemas. Its the "sweet spot"of frame rates that was developed decades ago. It gives the most "filmic" interpretation of movement. That nice soft, rich feel to
23.976 is used for broadcast quality and while the difference between the 2 looks negligible, when you view them side by side on a very large screen you WILL see the difference,. 23.976fps is used for tv broadcasts etc, not film.
2. Why are you interpreting footage? Is your main timeline 24fps? If yes then I would say yes, interpret the footage. Its important that your sequence frame rate and footage match one another for a seamless edit
3. 59.16fps? Thats a really odd frame rate. What was this shot on?
