The instructions expect I would migrate DES-encrypted passwords, but I
have a mixture of md5 and sha512-encrypted passwords. Do I need to
follow a different process, or am I chasing the wrong problem?

This is my first IPA realm.

If you have crypt-compatible passwords ($6$<huge string>) then just pass it in as {crypt}$6$... and it should work fine.

You can ONLY set a pre-hashed password in migration mode AND when adding the user. You can't add the user then set a hashed password.
