I'm getting a new stem and forks. Do all forks and stems fit? Also what do you guys prefer? 25mm or 32mm offset? Thanks!

Yes they do.
32 gives you more of a natural feel while 25 is steeper.
Some notice the difference some don't.

yes they work as long as theyre both 1 1/8. i prefer 32 offset as it's more common. I don't really feel the difference in forks

really depends on what you want to reide. lower offset may help with nose mannies, but you wont feel any difference between 32 and 25. you will however, feel a big difference if you switch to 0 offset (flatland) or 13mm offset primo strands. though they won't give you immediate ability to do nose mannies, they may help when learning

when i switched from 32 to 13mm, i felt a huge difference in my front end, but my nose manuals were helped a bit, but it took me like a month to get used to the differece.
