comment Are there any reasons not to upgrade to 200A service?
Your question is very confusing. You talk about some problems found with the wiring, a bit about a sub panel, and then you ask if you can upgrade the service. If you have multiple questions, it might make sense to post each question individually. If you're only concern is upgrading the main service, you may want to edit the question and omit some of the irrelevant details.

@maple_shaft This would likely be covered by 110.3(B). NEC 2008 110.3(B) Installation and Use. Listed or labeled equipment shall be installed and used in accordance with any instructions included in the listing or labeling.. AKA, RTFM n00b.

comment Can I install junction boxes in a closet, and if so, what kind of box?
I found the 5 1/2 ft. reference in section III Required Outlets of Article 210 Branch Circuits, 210.52(4) Located more than 1.7 m (51⁄2 ft) above the floor. Which taken out of context, may lead you to believe that there is a 5.5 ft. height restriction on receptacles. If you read the actual text, you'll find that this is not true. The receptacles required by this section shall be in addition to any receptacle that is: (4) Located more than 1.7 m (51⁄2 ft) above the floor

comment Why doesn't my A/C get power when using the alternate C-wire thermostat hook-up method?
Could you post a link to the installation instructions you followed, and/or summarize the "alternate C-wire method"? This will help folks understand exactly what you did.

There are no restriction (that I'm aware of) that disallow switches or receptacles in closets. Luminaires are allowed as well, but there are some restrictions in their placement.
