Am I right in thinking that the basic difference for describing intent between ~にする and ~つもりだ is that the former only follows a noun and the latter only follows a verb?

Yeah that’s fine but I wouldn’t say that these two are particularly similar.

~にする is something you would generally use in a restaurant or something like that. Kind of like ‘I’ll go for…’
ステーキにする - I’ll go for the steak.

~つもりだ is used for something you plan to do. It could even be a long way in the future.
再来年日本に行くつもりだ - I plan to go to Japan the year after next.

I understand why you’ve said they’re similar but if I were you I’d try to separate them in your mind as they are completely different.

One of the ‘alternate grammar’ for this review lists ‘にしす’ as a possible answer, is this correct?
