<< 1. Anyone played the master doom levels/other expansion packs? And thoughts?
I bought Master Doom levels in 1995 or 1996. It’s 20 more difficult levels plus a secret level. All 21 are made by ID Software. It comes with a shell source port and hundreds of levels that are mediocre made by people other than ID Software. I thought that it came with PIMP.wad, which was 20 levels for Doom 2 and good for 1995. There was another Wolfenstein/WolfenDoom level (I’d give it 2 stars), a buggy early Simpsons Doom II, Boxing Doom II, Chess Doom II, crosshairs Doom II, Wild West Doom II, a mod where the marine runs faster, and I thought there was Barney Ultimate Doom. The other levels were less memorable.
Final Doom is 2 extra episodes of 32 levels each. Doom 3 BFG edition forgot to erase the secret level 33. A video game console version of Ultimate Doom came with an extra secret level for episode 1.
A source port came with 2 extra 32-level episodes for Doom 2.
I just bought The D!Zone collection CD of wads. I’ll have to tell you about it later.
I’ve played and beaten Super Nintendo Wolfenstein 3D. I don’t think you’d like Super Nintendo Doom.
<< 2. Is there a SDL equivalent for Doom? Will it be a pain to use WAD files that's not "SDL"?
I don’t know, but I think I’ll mention patches. I thought it was Doom2.net where they have official patches made by ID Software and a version 1.91 patch made by somebody else.
<< 3. Are there any Doom WADs you'd recommend?

-Steampowered.com Doom at http://store.steampowered.com/sub/18397/
-Doom Center on Youtube (Also called GTA Doom II or Life of Doom Guy)
-Open up a non-German "Doom II: Hell On Earth" episode because of censorship. The secret level to the first Wolfenstein level is off of level 15, I believe.
