Are there any other solid SB choices for what I want to do? Or any you would recommend over the AWE32? I was told to stay away from the AWE64 due to no OPL3..
Short answer: there is no single, perfect DOS sound card. The AWE32 with genuine OPL3 is an excellent choice overall. Another option would be to combine an AWE64 with a second sound card (e.g. a Yamaha Audician 32) for genuine OPL3, a bug-free MIDI interface and proper SBPro stereo compatibility.
But again, it all depends on what you want to do with your rig. For example, if you never intend to use a wavetable daughter board with your sound card or hook up an external MIDI device to it, then those MIDI bugs are meaningless to you.
