I am switching from 2 Penguin 350 HOB filters with biowheels to a Penn Plax Cascade 1000 canister filter on my 75 gallon tank. I plan on letting the HOB filters continue to run while my canister filter builds up a decent bioload. So my question is how long should I continue to run the HOB filters? Weeks? Months?

Not necessary. Take all the media out of your HOB filters and put it in the canister instead. The biowheels don't hold much bacteria but if you want you can cut them up and put them in one of the canister trays also.
