Can I Choose Which Specific Posts Get Cross-Posted and Which Don't?

Yes, you can! There are different methods to choose which posts to get cross-posted and which don’t. For example, with Nuelink you can choose only the posts with a specific hashtag to get cross-posted, any posts that don't have that hashtag won’t be cross-posted.

Will My Instagram Hashtags Appear on Other Social Media Platforms When I Cross-Post?

When the third-party social media management tool took your post from Instagram to cross-post it to others, it took all of the post details, such as captions, descriptions, and hashtags.

So, yes the hashtags of your Instagram posts will appear on other social media platforms as well.

Does Cross-Posting Affect the Quality of the Images or Videos?

As a general rule, crossposting doesn't affect the quality of images and videos.
However, there's an exception
Not all social media platforms have the same image and video sizes, and they might also have different guidelines.
If the differences in size and guidelines between the platform you're crossposting from and the one you're crossposting to are minor, there's nothing to worry about.
But if the differences are significant, it won't really decrease the quality, but it can make your content appear unnatural.
