The subject is compound and hence you need a plural pronoun 'them'.
Pronouns such as it, that and these do not have a specific antecedent to fall back on. Internalize is a verb and a pronoun can not refer to it. That is the reason that the adverb ‘so’ which modifies the verb of ‘internalize’ is preferable over ‘it’

Choice C is the correct one.

Doing so is the correct idiom

and u need them to modify the plural nouns here
