I checked my swarm traps this morning an both had scout bees checking them out. If scout bees find an acceptable location before a swarm leaves the hive will move directly to it? Or will they first congregate somewhere else (i.e. a tree branch) before moving in? In other words, is it necessarily a 2 step process?

I have never witnessed anything other than a two step process. The amount of time spent before moving on to step two varies greatly.
