Shantae, Sonic and Donkey Kong are highly requested in general, and the latter two would be decent replacements for Rinka and Juni. Among other requests, I haven't played Psycho Waluigi but he might just work. Kirby might be a bit much, like, do Hammer and Fire Bros give him those abilities? I don't know if custom characters are possible via LunaLUA right now, though...
Donkey Kong's handslap would be a great move, don't get me wrong. For Sonic, we'd need to implement wall and ceiling running first (Maybe that can be his unique ability, like Wario's shoulder bash. Maybe Mario could wall jump...)
For other characters, maybe Giana. Banjo and Kazooie if you can get them to work in 2D. And if you wanted to be really weird and add in non-game characters, I guess Puppysmiles (Her ability could be turning into a gas cloud and passing through certain blocks)

I'd just like to see characters that are already in the game to be worked on better, specifically Mega Man and Samus. They don't feel right in this game, and I'd like to see them feel more like their originals.
Have barely played any Mega Man games or Metroid games outside the Prime trilogy and Samus Returns, but I definitely agree with you on Samus, the limited Screw Attack I kind of get (otherwise she'd be plain broken) but tying her abilities to her powerup state is just weird if you ask me. Mega Man seems to be okay to me, though the only personal experience I've had is the intro stage and small portions of two other stages in the first X game, so I can't really judge.
For other characters working better I'd like to see Wario states. Snake needs a lot of improvement, too. I don't even know who Ninja Bomberman is (I know regular Bomberman)
Uncle Broadsword seems to be broken in clear pipes but that's at least been reported and is bound to be fixed soon.
EDIT: Of course, if we're adding non-game characters, Shrek is inevitable. Maybe he'd play like a beat-em-up character.
EDIT2: How could I forget Marisa? And we have Super Marisa World and New Super Marisa Land for reference, too.
EDIT3: Also forgot about Yoshi.
we're going to be replacing Ninja Bomberman with a character from Dustforce
Will they play the same, or is Ninja Bomberman too different to keep?
That makes the list so far:
Requested or thought of in this thread:
Yoshi separate from Klonoa
An undecided Dustforce character
Banjo & Kazooie
