Hmm, so when I submit an application with `spark-submit`, I need to guarantee it resources using YARN queues and not Spark's scheduler pools. Is that correct?

When are Spark's scheduler pools relevant/useful in this context?

Your mixing up different levels of scheduling. Spark's fair scheduler pools are about scheduling Jobs, not Applications; whereas YARN queues with Spark are about scheduling Applications, not Jobs.

I'm having trouble understanding the difference between Spark fair scheduler pools and YARN queues. Do they conflict? Does one override the other?

I posted a more detailed question about an issue I'm having with this on Stack Overflow:
