The tightest curve that I can find on US14//16/20 (on Google Maps) is in the park. It's a bit less than a 180 turn, but the radius is about 200'. Many freeway cloverleaf ramps are tighter than that.

US89 the north entrance has tighter curves in Gardner and Mammoth. One's a right angle street junction!

I have made the trip from MN on I-94/I-90 many times. If I am headed to the Fishing Bridge area I will head South at Laurel MT and head to Cody WY via MT 72 going thru Belfry MT. West at Cody via US 14 into the East entrance. The road to Cody is mostly flat. US 14 from Cody to the East entrance has numerous switch backs near the park and some elevation change but it will be easily doable in your rig.

Turning South on US 89 at Livingston MT will get you to the North entrance at Gardnier. This route is mostly flat as far as Gardnier.

Turning South on US 191 at Bozeman will get you to the West entrance at West Yellowstone MT. This is a very scenic drive but may have a short stretch of construction.

Depends on where you are going to stay.
I-94 west to I-90.
US 89 south if staying at Fishing Bridge area.
US 191 maybe quicker if staying in West Yellowstone area. A little longer but easier road.

89 would be the QUICKEST way into the park but depending on where you're staying while there it may not be the quickest way to your campground. Traffic along the western part of the park loop can be slow and tedious this time of year. Not as bad on the Eastern loop but it's still a long drive to many of the attractions and camping areas and often includes Mt Washburn (beautiful drive but again, kind of slow).

Depends a lot on where you're coming from.
Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.
