Using a portland cement based floor leveler shouldn't damage your hardwood floor if you want to have it refinished at a later date,you would have to sand off all the old vinyl tile adhesive that would be under the floor patch.Be careful when removing the old VAT because it most likely contains asbestos. Using a hardboard underlayment will make the floor smooth but does little to make it flat so you still may be better patching the floor rather than underlaying it, plus it will save money. If you do go the underlayment route then transitioning 3/4" to the other hardwood floor can be done by getting a 3/4" hardsurface reducer that avaiable in most stain colors or available unfinished and stained to match the existing floor. Hope this helps. let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks
