In the first set of females, I'd go with the third female. In the second set, the DT. They have the best fin form compared to the rest of your females.
Since your males have better form, I'd suggest breeding F1 to the father (both HM males).

Your PK is asymmetrical so you can breed him to the females that has long anal fins. If you want to create symmetrical PK, breed him to the first DT - again, breed F1 back to father

What effect does HMPK have on HM? I know many people use them to help correct HM form which is why I got them but I am not very clear on the exact details.

I agree on the pairing as well btw although I will be breeding the copper male to the metallic blue female at some point.

HMPK x HM - is mainly to improve the HM. But: For the PK; enlarge (1/3 of body length) the fins (original PK has smaller fins), create symmetrical HMPK or only balance the dorsal and caudal.
To create symmetrical HMPK, you will eventually have to breed to a DT because they must have longer dorsal.
