Convention standing rules

If a motion to amend convention standing rules is made during the initial debate regarding adoption of the rules, does the motion to amend require a majority or 2/3rds vote?  If it is a majority vote, couldn't that lead to a situation where a majority amends the rule but 2/3rds then do not want to adopt the amended rule?

I agree; that situation is possible. But, by the same token, if a majority voted to amend the proposed rules, presumably they did not wish to adopt them in the original form, in which case the original motion may also lack the support needed for a two-thirds vote.
