how did you "accidentally" delete? if the disk wasn't written to
afterwards, the data is still *technically* there, but linking it back
together sounds like a real chore :-(

I can't imagine it'll be all that loud. i run a 2x2TB RAID1
(md/softraid) array for my local server using dense/"green" disks
(5900rpm) and believe me, the disks are dwarfed by everything else
(eg, fans ;-)
your "mount one at a time" scheme won't really help you ... what if
your disk dies since the last backup? RAID lets you replace a disk in
real-time/on-line and gives a noticeable read performance boost ...
what's too lose? off-site backups are still a good thing.

regardless of distro you'll just have to work it into youre needs.
Arch will let you do this pretty well, but you'll just have to stay on
top of incoming changes ... such is life i suppose :-) Pulseaudio
works fantastic for the use cases it was designed for (which fulfills
95% of people's needs), but if it doesn't work for you, you can
suspend it and let JACK or whatever take control as needed.
