I am trying to setup and configure the Operations Console for an AS/400.

I am trying to decipher some of the needed items.

I have the direct cable hooked up and see that I need to change the console from TWINAX to Dedicated through DST and requires an IPL.

Is there anything else that I need to do?

Best thing to do is just follow IBM's comprehensive installation and setup instructions for your OS version (which you didn't mention).  Explains every action and option in detail:

You can change the console from the panel.  Look for instructions for 65 and 21.

You can "force DST console" with 65+21 also with out IPL.

This is not very user friendly.  Get comfortable with 65+21.  If you get stuck without a console that will be your only way out.

You will have to install "modem" software on the windows box.

OK - what are thoughts of a pc using a twin-ax emulation card?  I have a guy who has/is using the OPS Console and seems to be a bit buggy according to him.

If your system has a twinax controller, there can be good reasons to have a twinax console available. I would also want an alternate LAN or Ops Console for a lot of convenience. Basic twinax terminals suitable for console use can be bought from reliable internet sources in the $200-300 range. If you have a PC with twinax card and emulation software that works, you should be able to get by as long as it survives.

I would stick with the twin if it was me...

get a twin card for a pc and put VNC on it and you can do systems saves from your house.
