A product change does not involve a hard pull. It's if you're approved for a new card that will result in a hard pull.

A product change will not affect your scores. A new card will.

Is it well-established that blue sky can be easily PC'ed into blue cash?

It's not clear to me that the rules around PCs are at all consistent. Sure, you can't make a charge card a true credit card. But other than that, some strange PCs have been allowed, and some simple ones have been denied.
