As inconvenient as it might be not to be able to sync your iPhone to the iMac, being in the middle of important stuff you probably want to push this off until a quieter time.
Unlike Lion/Mountain Lion, Snow Leopard allowed a lot of applications that run under Leopard to continue to operate without any problems. Lion essentially killed all PPC support, so universal application from the Leopard or earlier era just stopped working immediately..
Once you are in a quiet period, perhaps you can try to do an upgrade to Snow Leopard and deal with any issues surrounding Office and Adobe Suite..
As far as the SHSH goes..I only downgraded my iPhone 3G a long time ago and have forgotten the steps I went through..so I can't answer that decisively..
