Can I expect a jump in scores by paying a cc . . .?

that is showing as open on my report but is closed by credit grantor?  It is showing as a current account that is adding interest every month.  Should I start making payments toward this or just send the total amount at one time?

PFD if it is closed by grantor... you don't want that there.

Depending on the circumstances, you might try to GW something out with them to improve and save the TL.

Tried the PFD and it was a no go.  I will have no choice but to pay it.  I am just wondering if that will then raise my scores somewhat.  It is making my util very high since it is still showing a balance and overlimit.

Try a PFD with threat of BK.  I just did that on one account hoping it works.

Short answer is yes paid looks marginally better.  
 
Long answer is you still have loads of bargaining room.  I'd nag them for a payment arrangment...even PIF if that is ok with you, and keep banging out letters to get something in writing regarding a deletion or them changing derog info.
