Don't edit in AE. AE is for fancy titles and motion effects. If you're editing video in AE you're wasting your time, use Premiere.
And as for Premiere...use whatever settings correlate to your workflow and/or desired product. What frame rate are you shooting in? What aspect ratio? What size do you want your final video to be? Do you have to deinterlace?
The only DEFINITE thing I can recommend is to compress your audio using the AAC codec from 48kHz to 44.1kHz if you're putting it up on Vimeo, otherwise you might experience a slight off-putting of sound.
