So, originally, I had installed 64GB of memory, but discovered, what I believe at the time, was a bad RAM module. I had to send back a pair. On extracting, Proxmox freaked out and I had to reinstall it.

Then, I discovered that it was actually a bad RAM slot. Now, I going back to 64GB with two 32GB modules instead of the 32GB, two 16GB modules. Since I am increasing instead of subtracting, Proxmox won't freak out again, right?
 
I dont know what you mean with "freak out" but if something goes wrong (witch I don't think it will) it is most likely possible to fix it without reinstallation. I highly encourage you try to resolve problems since it helps you develop skills you need as an administrator. If you are stuck just ask in the Forum. We are here to help :)

What was the exact "freak out" here? Proxmox should not care if there is less memory after a reboot than before.
Despite what appears a popular error, it a while back to remember the wording exactly. The memory didn't work (G Skill) and got another set of official Dell memory which should be here Tuesday.
