(Python 3.8 here). There are 123 files on my computer called setup.py and 29 of them are in /opt/local. Which one should I use? Is there one that sits “higher” so that non-Macports Pythons can also see it?

I'm not sure I understand the question. Every python project that builds using setuptools should have its own setup.py file that says how to set it up.
