After extracting multiple sources to a folder, I have multiple alignments files, and I know theyre important, is it a good idea to extract that folder to unify the extraction settings/alignment file?

No, you don't need to combine multiple extracts for one alignment file. The alignment file is only needed for the convert step, and since each time you extract a video it creates a matching alignment file you don't need to combine them at all anymore.
