Keep in mind that phase differences are a feature of spaced pairs - there's not really anything to "fix" as far as phase. You can get different sounds by manipulating the timing on a track, or by moving the mics. I use several meters while positioning mics, as well as listening by ear, so that I'm happy with the sound going in. Whatever works is fair game, but I'd generally try to get the mic setup right to start with rather than trying to alter it later, if possible. Even with the adjustment plugin I posted, I started out using it to make sure multiple pairs of mics were better in phase, but based on what it showed me, I've tended to place the mics to minimize the differences, to the point that I don't actually use the tool much anymore.

But there's always lots of approaches that can work, all that matters is that it sounds good in the end.
