I'm surprised iMovie can't just read the files since you have added the MPEG2 codec from Apple. By the way, what version of iMovie are you using?

Also, is step 4 really needed. MPEG Streamclip should see the files on the camera as being in a folder. Are there performance reasons for doing this step?

Once you have edited your files you can send the finished project to iDVD using iMovie 09, or export an appropriate file and import that into an iDVD project. iDVD will convert the files to MPEG2 for use on the DVD. When that occurs depends on a project selection. Most of the experienced iDVD users suggest creating a disc image before trying to burn to a DVD because this isolates the DVD burning process from the creation processing. This can matter when you see DVD burning problems. It's been talked about enough here.
