In method 1 from the last lecture do the 2 NO's cancel each other out?

Yes. The 2NO's cancel each other which is why NO is not in the final reaction.

You can cancel them out because they are on opposite sides of the equation! (one is a reactant, the other is product)

Those chemical species that are a product of one reaction but also the reactant of another are considered intermediates, so you don't have to worry about them when using Method 1.
