Yeah, congrats from me too :-)

And about the 8096: The 8096 was actually an expansion board
to the 8032, so I guess you got a 8032 that has probably
only later been expanded.

I guess that this indeed is a 8096 expansion.

You should be able to use the same LOS-96 that you can use
with the 8296.
On the LOS96 disks there is a test program for the additional RAM.

Sorry, no idea. Probably it is possible to reverse-engineer 
the type from the schematics.
