While the decoding process is correct in ffmpeg, in the encoding there are things which make up the quality (you could see that in H264 vs X264, which was constantly improved), such work on open-source ProRes ENCODER did not happen due ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Point of clarification,  x.264 is a version of a H.264 compliant encoder.  The encoder can be whatever someone wants to program as long as the result can be decoded by a compliant decoder.  The comparison would be the Main Concept version vs x.264 and others.  According to the Moscow tests, x.264 is better.

ProRes is of course a proprietary licensed codec.  The non Apple versions are sometimes OK but they do sometimes fail distributors QC.  So yes,  be aware you may need to create deliverables on a Mac.

Y'all take care,
