As for the OP's proposed setup, I use his "upper" drawing all the time. I use three unlimited cellular hotspots along with the local park WiFi in a Load Balancing mode. It works like a charm even with low cost cellular connections that have limited download speeds.

Any recommendations on the Aspen or the Spruce? Is one better over the other?

The Aspen and Spruce use the same quad-core processor so that aspect of their performance is equivalent. The Aspen has a more powerful WiFi transmitter and it has the ability to have an integrated modem. Each customer has to evaluate how important those features are to them.

Have not used the WeBoost or OTR Trucker external antennas "have two" connected to the hotspots in 2 years or longer. The 8800L and MR1100 are good without. Used the weboost mostly for the DW T-Mobile service to steam and antennas on Netgear LB2120 & MF279 - before I upgraded to my current hotspots.

Have looked at the netgear mimo antenna but the hotspot performance at worst has been 5 to 6 meg download "South and South East US", so just never had a good reason to get one.

I have 3 unlimited hotspots so all this spring, DW was able to video conf for work & stream without issue. We would just each connect to a different one and still be able to stream netflix on the third. I would just speed test them and give her the one that had the best performance.

The Aspen load balancing is what I been looking at for the last 4 or 5 mts. Just with traveling and shipping time frame. They we out of stock by the time I got to home.

I am into K.I.S.S. One device and done !!

I like the Winegard ConnecT 2.0.

It is a permanent mount on your roof, with a built in antenna, so you should get good reception. Works with most carriers.

I don't know if it does MIMO.
