As it is already in MNI space, there is no transformation required. Just
use "Interpolate to a nifti volume" instead.

This call is not needed. Just use the coordinates without any

Yes. The results which you get when using "Interpolate to a nifti
volume" are already in MNI space, and you can apply any ROI that is in
