The answer to all of those conversions is to have a SimdSignal.cast method that
handles conversion of an input nmigen Value or SimdSignal to the desired
Full conversion implementation:
class SimdSignal(...):
    def cast(value, *, shape=None, scope):
        # scope injected by calling this method as
        # scope.Signal_cast(value, shape=shape), which is a
        # partial() of SimdSignal.cast
        if shape is not None:
            assert shape.scope is scope
        if isinstance(value, SimdSignal):
            assert value.shape().scope is scope
            if shape is None or shape == value.shape():
                return value
        # I'm assuming SwizzleKey is already replaced by SimdScope.
        # from_value handles splatting a scalar nmigen Value if needed.
        src = SwizzledSimdValue.from_value(scope, value)
        swizzles = {}
        for src_el, dst_el in zip(src.shape().elements(),
            elwid = src_el.elwid
            # SimdShape always iterates elements in the same order across all
            # SimdShapes for a particular scope.
            assert elwid == dst_el.elwid
            if elwid not in swizzles:
                swizzles[elwid] = Swizzle.from_const(0, shape.width)
            # get bits for current src_el
            el = src.swizzles[elwid][src_el.slice]
            if src_el.shape.signed: # *src* determines sign/zero extension
                # truncate/sign-extend
                el = el.convert_s_to(dst_el.shape)
                # truncate/zero-extend
                el = el.convert_u_to(dst_el.shape)
            # assign converted bits to dest
            swizzles[elwid].bits[dst_rl.slice] = el.bits
        # oops, I forgot shape argument for __init__
        return SwizzledSimdValue(scope, swizzles, shape=shape)

now, all ops can use:
ops_input_arg = SimdSignal.cast(ops_input_arg, shape=desired_shape,

    def __add__(self, other):
        l_shape = self.shape()
        scope = l_shape.scope
        # splat scalars to SimdSignal
        other = SimdSignal.cast(other, scope=scope)
        r_shape = other.shape()
        def get_el_shape(l, r):
            # let nmigen compute result element's shape
            return (Const(0, l) + Const(0, r)).shape()
        el_shapes = SimdMap.map(get_el_shape, l_shape.el_shapes,
        shape = SimdShape(el_shapes, scope=scope)
        # could have a SimdShape.map method letting us write:
        # shape = SimdShape.map(get_el_shape, l_shape, r_shape)

        # convert to result's shape
        lhs = SimdSignal.cast(self, shape=shape, scope=scope)
        rhs = SimdSignal.cast(other, shape=shape, scope=scope)

        # do add
        return lhs.add_op(lhs, rhs, carry=0)
