I'd go with whatever you feel comfortable with as long as it functions well for the task at hand. But the chisel ones seem the best all-rounder.
You might want a bigger chisel than the 1.2 as well, maybe 1.6 or 2. For best heat transfer you should use the tip that is the biggest you can get away with.
I usually use a chisel or a conical. Never tried the C-shape (Hoof tip) but I think they are good for drag soldering of SMD ICs. Mini-wave is even better though.
Sadly the 936 and 888 don't have mini-wave tips! I've bought some non-standard tips for my 936 on eBay of a brand called JLY but they had no mini-wave either. It's simply a C-type with an indentation to hold solder where there is normally a flat face, doesn't seem like it would be difficult to produce!
I'm used to conical as my first irons had only that, however I noticed the B-type tip I bought for my 936 had a bigger, more rounded point on it than those I was familiar with. The ones on my old irons aren't needle-point but they do come down pretty sharp.
Short and a bit pointy rather than long and really pointy
As for flux, I don't think it matters too much which type you get, they will all help. From what I've seen on Youtube videos:
*) Syringe seems good for already placed but not soldered SMD parts (tight control, no physical contact)
*) Flux-pen is a good all-round way and easy to use
*) Paste-flux seems to be for the times where you want the flux to hang around for a while without burning off too quickly. Say, cleaning up a large BGA's pads or such.
