For my 10/32 threaded American Strat, should I be ordering a 5mm or 6mm replacement whammy bar? Thanks in advance.

If I had an american strat, I'd put the same part in it. So neither !
I have never tried to jam an M5 into a 10-32 but I understand it would be a snug/force fit. A 10-32 is a sloppy fit in a m5x08 but it goes.
Get one that's spec'd 10-32.
M5x08 is .1968" major and 10-32 is .190" major. They are not the same.

Anyone out there tapped a MIA 10-32 to M5x08 ?

You can't put a metric thread in any Imperial thread. I'll admit some are pretty close but they all end up damaging the threads
