Safety is not a one size fits all and, for cars like the S2000, adding incomplete safety systems may result in a more dangerous car, rather than a safer one.
Do you know of a good source of entry-level info on the topic?
I just installed my first rollbar and intend to upgrade to seats and harnesses.
When choosing my seats, do I need to be thinking about HNR?
What sorts of options are out there, aside from manufacturer?

Schroth has good documentation. https://www.schrothracing.com/instructions
I strongly suggest you get a containment seat. HANS is for F-R collisions, a containment seat will keep your head in place in an offset/diagonal/sideways impact. There are other HNR systems that will help in these types of impacts.

These cars are tight inside, so it's not real easy to have a dual purpose car once you make the dive into safety, in comparison to something like an E46.

Traqhq has one of the better threads I came across when I was in need of some understanding.
Schroth also has some great material, as does most of the harness manufacturers. HANS also has some good documentation.

Everything is tied together as a system. A few examples:
  • Your rollbar should place the harness bar within ~200mm
  • Your rollbar should place your harness bar no lower than 20* from your shoulders
  • Your shoulder height is positioned by your seat and your seat rails
  • Your shoulders need to align with the passthrough holes for your harness.
  • If you have a harness you need a rollbar, if you need a harness you need a seat, if you have a harness you need a head and neck restraint.
