Assuming that info is correct, yes.
According the the listing they are "region Free"....so they should be playable in the U.S.; correct?

I am almost, I repeat, almost certain this is incorrect. I saw an interview with Daniel Radcliffe in which he stated he was no fan of 3D. That for part 1, no plans had been made for the movie to be converted to 3D when it was filmed. Part 2, however, was planned to be converted. When I saw it in 3D, I thought it was excellent. Again, I emphasize my memory isn't quite good enough to swear in court about that interview, but I'm kinda, sorta, sure:)
Given that this movie was converted to 3D as an afterthought, with no artistic impetus for the effect or consideration of it during filming, a plain old 2D Blu-ray is fine by me.

I'm not 100% certain either, though, and would love it if somebody could provide more concrete information.

So no matter the final result, you're not interested because it wasn't filmed to be 3D? Seems rather close minded to me. The 3D in Part 2 was just fine, IMHO and that of another poster. Just because There's a Clash of the Titans out there, it doesn't mean every 3D conversion will be bad.
, but still, they are working on a film that was shot with no consideration of a 3D presentation, so it doesn't really interest me.

So the motive behind the decision is what matters? So if a studio sets out to make "Psycho Cheerleaders in Bikinis Meet the Munsters" purely to make a few bucks and somehow comes up with a movie to rival "Citizen Kane", you won't be interested because of the initial motivation? Many times the making of docs point out that the director's first choice for the lead can't be had because he's two expensive or not available and they go to the 2nd or 3rd or 4th choice based on who they can get. There are so many business decisions made on any movie that are made for commercial reasons only. I'll make my decision to watch based on the final results.
The reason I'm not interested is because the 3D conversion was a business decision by the studio, not an artistic decision by the filmmakers. As I said before, there was "no artistic impetus for the effect or consideration of it during filming."

And I generally enjoy those movies in spite of the commercial considerations, not because of them. 3D conversions differ from many other moviemaking business decisions in that the conversion of an existing 2D film to 3D does not alter it intrinsically. The version of the film unaffected by the business decision--the original 2D version--remains. As I said before, I'm sure the 3D version of Harry Potter looks great, and that the 3D effect is convincing. There are plenty of black-and-white films that have been successfully and convincingly converted to color, too, but I'm not interested in watching any of them, either. I'd prefer to simply stick with the film as originally made by the director.
