I am confused about the loading of a 400' mag on the Eclair NPR. I know that it has to be done in total darkness, but the manual says that that only applies to the 'film feed' side. Does that mean that once I load that side of the magazine and close it, I can turn the lights on to finish loading the film in the takeup side?

Yes.
Eclair, like the Aaton and Arri Sr series of 16mm cameras are Co-axial magazines. The feed and take up are separate, so once you load up the feed side and get a bit of film through the mag throat, you can close up that side of the mag and load up the take-up in the light.
