comment Product Owner introduces ungroomed (unfamiliar, not estimated) User Story(s) into the Sprint Planning meeting
The team is already using Planning Poker. We have found that Planning Poker works well for all of our teams if they have enough context around the User Story. To me a Scrum Master is a not a Project Manager, they are their to get the best out of the team and get all stakeholders collaborating in an effective way. The role of PM is split between the Product Owner, Team and Scrum Master.

You are correct Scott the second question I pretty much answered myself. I included the second scenario / question for completeness; as I really wanted to set the context of the question. I am most interested in answers (backed up with real experience) to my first question. Thank you for putting my post in the correct spot, I will use Stack Exchange from now on.
