The Sanwa JLF is the most popular Japanese style joystick. It goes against the standard levered microswitches found in nearly every other joystick manufactured by any company. The JLF microswitches are connected to a PCB with a 5-pin output. Comes stock with a square gate for 8-way operation but can be turned 45 degrees for 4-way operation.

I tried, but I couldn't figure out HOW to solidly snap the rescrictor in, when turned 45 degrees. Any suggestion?

For Japanese sticks, it is highly recommended that you top mount the joystick unless your top panel is metal. In some cases, it is essential to top mount. To top mount joysticks, you will need to use a tool that can create a recessed area the size of your mounting plate at the correct depth. (For mounting plate dimensions please go to http://akihabarashop.com/products.html and thank TheRealNeoGeo for providing these measurements and Japanese parts!). Additionally, you will need to have a tool that will create a hole in the control panel so that the base of the stick can fit through and attach to the mounting plate from beneath the control panel.

That's my journal/tutorial on how I build my sticks. You don't want to follow it honestly because it's too advanced for you at this stage.

How is a Sanwa BAT-top going to compare to say a Happ competition?

Either is fine.

The octagon gate only fits onto JLF series. The stock T5 stick is not JLF. It's not even Sanwa. So, the answer is no.
No real arcade buttons will fit in without modification. But if you do the correct modding, yes they will fit.
