arabian will become famous soon enough

This is my understanding:

Case conference judges are do not become the trial judge.

Case conference judges often make "endorsements" which are then filed in continuing record.

Case conference judges can make orders on procedural matters and their main objective is to try to move the two parties to settle on consent.

Trial management judges can also make procedural orders but their main objective is to ensure parties are ready for trial and of course ascertaining if parties are able to settle. They essentially try to narrow the focus on matters.

You can find much information on the internet as well as searching this forum: Differences between settlement and case conferences as your question has been raised many times over the years.
