SNR = Signal to Noise Ratio (regardless of "upstream" or "downstream"

Tx power = the amount of RF energy - typically in watts - the earth station radiates toward the satellite

There is no direct relationship between Polarization and either of the above. Optimizing polarization is a matter of geometry, where the earth station antenna is rotationally aligned with respect to the orbital arc.
