Not all Borg are immune to SS only the Cubes and Tac Cubes and most Bosses. So if you see a group of Probes, Spheres and a Cube, scramble the Spheres and they will attack the Cube. For STFs, if there is a Boss like Donatra with the old round probes this will tell you they can't be scrambled at all. I have no idea why, they are just different.

Tractor Beam 1 is enough. It will hold PvE ships and only the damage would increase slightly with a higher level. There is also no need to put any points in Tractor Beam Skills. Gravity Well 3 is a strong AoE Hold but the larger ships like Spheres and Cubes will (slowly) move away, that's where the Tractor Beam comes into play to hold the primary target.

It is not really necessary to help HE or PH with consoles, only if there is room left. You can go with 3 or even 4 Spatial Anomaly consoles or whatever and you will be fine. If you want an additional hull heal/resist against Borg, train another engineer in EPtS 1 / Aux2SIF 1, the Aux2SIF can sometimes be more useful than a second copy of EPtS against Borg and will not interfere with Tac and Sci Team like Eng Team would. HE 3 would probably be a waste to simply clear a Shield Neutralizer so Aux2SIF will come in handy.
