I've built a sheet metal block-off plate for my new setup with a freestanding century s244 in my small masonry fireplace firebox. What fasteners (screws/nails/etc.) are recommended to attach the 1 inch semi-perpendicular 'lips' of the plate to the walls of the masonry firebox?

I realize this probably isnt a major issue so long as I dont use plastic or wood pegs, but would appreciate any suggestions.

If it wedges in there snuggly, you can silicone the entire perimeter edge and it won't go anywhere. If needed to screw, yes masonry bit & tapcons.
