out of curiosity, what is the designation of the ending?
It's

-aṃ (-iṃ, -uṃ, -ṃ)

1. m. n. f. sg. acc. buddhaṃ (the Buddha), phalaṃ (the fruit), gāthaṃ (the verse), rājaṃ (the king)
2. n. sg. nom. phalaṃ (the fruit), kammaṃ (karma)

DN 11, Walshe Translation. But, monk, you should not ask your question in this way: ‘Where do the four great elements — the earth element, the water element, the fire element, the air element — cease without remainder?’ Instead, this is how the question should have been put: ‘Where do earth, water, ...

How technically is there a transition from shamatha to vipassana during the practice of conscious breathing?
Ven. Dhammajiva describes this in his book "In This Life Itself", page 23 ff, and in his book "A Mind Revealed", page 18 ff:

Re: Is the term "cessation of greed, hatred & delusion" in the suttas?

Dear DooDoot, Often it is said Nibbana is the " cessation of greed, hatred & delusion ". This must be a translation of " rāgakkhayo dosakkhayo mohakkhayo ". The Pali word commonly translated as " cessation " is " nirodha ". Currently there's a popular urban legend about " Nirodha ", a strange hybrid...

I've seen statements like "When one is in jhana, all defilements are suppressed temporarily." Is there any scriptural source for this?
No.
