For example, if I make changes to props.conf that do not require a restart, what is the best method to reload the file?

Each conf file also has a corresponding endpoint which can be called with:
https://host:mgmtport/services/configs/conf-conf_file_name/_reload

example to reload inputs from the CLI/api
splunk _internal call /data/inputs/monitor/_reload -auth admin:changeme

Remark : some configurations change do require a restart.
