As far as the Kryptonian Earhling genocide aspect that doesn't really apply. The Kryptonians are already dead, the humans are not. Being raised human would most likely be enough for Superman to side with humans. Also if he really wanted to resurrect Krypton he could simply fly to another planet and terraform it and then bring his people back.
It reminds me of the Star Trek film from a couple of years ago where Spock sacrificed his home planet Vulcan in order to save Earth.
Imagine an Earth with a billion supermen on it. They would quickly become the masters of the planet and enslave humanity.
We discover that the Codex is inside Clark Kent, and Clark is perfectly content to stop Zod and destroy the machinery that will allow Zod to bring the Kryptonians to life-just so Clark can save Earth. Let me say that a different way: Superman is willing to sacrifice a billion of his own race in order to save 7 billion of another.
He destroyed the terraforming machine that changed atmosphere and gravity, and he destroyed the "matrix" (womb) where Kryptonians could be born-did he have the technology/know how to make more? How could he get the DNA out of himself? And could he survive long enough in space to travel the distance to find the new planet?
That must of been a different Star trek movie I and others watched because Spock didn't sacrifice his own planet in order to save earth.
His planet was destroyed by the villain of the movie (Nero) in a revenge act for Spock not saving Nero's home planet of Romulus when it was destroyed in the original timeline.
