I did 152F...you could do lower, though, since it's a relatively large beer (okay, not by everybody's standards, but relatively).

Want to make this beer, but how will kegging it change the conditioning time? Don't want to rush things, but would like to show this off in a few months if possible. If bottleing is the better option, please let me know.

The conditioning time is really the same either way and this beer is best with a month or two conditioning just due to the high abv. Bottling is more traditional because you can pour the yeast into the glass just like a Hefeweizen, but I don't see any real issue with kegging it.

You can rush the conditioning if you want, it just won't be quite as smooth.

This is purely from the hip, but I'd replace the grains with
6.5# wheat dme
1.5# munich dme
steep the CaraMunich 40
keep hops and yeast the same.

American wheat yeast is a huge waste of a yeast. So bland. Use US-04 at high temps. to get some fruityness without the bananna and clove.

This looks good, but wouldn't this technically be a Dunkel Weisse?

Technically, if the O.G. were above 16 Plato it can be considered a Bock. Above 18 Plato it can be called a Dopplebock (under German law).
Weizenbocks are wheat-based Dopplebocks, so the O.G. could be anywhere from 18-28 Plato.

But aren't bocks lagers; this one calls for an ale yeast.

And i've got the ingredients all set for making his beer tomorrow, whatever it might be called.
