From your own experience, is it better to do batch effect correction with Seurat (using CCA) or through Harmony (using it through the Seurat Wrappers)?

Neither, I had best results with fastMNN from the Bioconductor package batchelor. Depends on the magnitude of the batch effect though. Sometimes, if it is only some minor technical variation, like the basically same material prepared on two different days maybe even something simple as regression on the logcounts can be enough. On the other hand if the actual difference that you aim to remove is a pertubation effect that confounds the clustering then more stringent methods are required. You would need some details about your samples. What are they, are the same celltypes expected in both batches, is there a pertubation involved...

As usual in this context I will recommend to read the relevant paragraph in our holy single-cell bible OSCA: http://bioconductor.org/books/release/OSCA/integrating-datasets.html

How can I integrate fastMNN for Seurat? Is it a good idea to do the analysis in SCE object until batch correction, and then convert it to Seurat object?

I am pretty sure SeuratWrappers has fastMNN included.

Yes, it is included. Here are some examples to run fastMNN on Seurat objects: https://github.com/satijalab/seurat-wrappers/blob/master/docs/fast_mnn.md

This is a very useful paper. There's also github for the comparisons they've ran.
