my best advice would just be to use a shader that isn't dependent on pixel knowledge, like one of the proper CRT shaders.
the 'smoothing' shaders really aren't doing justice to any of the original game art, nor presenting it in the manner in which it was intended at all, they're converting what was carefully crafted pixelart into something that looks like it was drawn by a child in MSPaint.
the CRT shaders, which simulate how the image would have looked on a TV will present you with something far closer to how the game designers and artists intended.
also most SNES emulators don't offer Overclocking options because it's a terrible idea on SNES games, many of them are incredibly timing sensitive, it's one of the worst things you can do for a SNES game and even now in MAME the inaccuracies in the CPU emulation speed relative to other things are the reason the compatibility with some games isn't great. The other emulators don't have such options because they've spent years finding out how things should run to help ensure good compatibility. MAME specifically hides the overclocking option behind the cheat options because it's a bad idea in the majority of cases, and really only a debug aid.
There's a point at which you should probably take the resistance of the emulators to do what you want as a sign that doing it isn't really a good idea.
