comment Unable to mount fat drive in linux
So instead of that, since this is on EC2, I just made a new instance of a suse premade that had vfat ready to go, and all was well. You were right, I just didn't do it that way. :)

Thought I would post here to complete the loop. I just ended that ec2 instance and found a suse pre-made that had vfat ready to go, and your mount option worked like a charm. I owe you big time osgx!

So if that modprobe command doesn't work on it's own, I need to rebuild the kernel either way?

And then what? Rebuild the kernel? Is there no way to modprobe it active?

Yeah, I could do whatever, it's just an EC2 machine. I've got the results, but I'm going to post it back into the question with updated progress so the whole thing is here.

Gives the wrong fs type error, and dmesg | tail gives: [12418.336620] FAT: IO charset iso8859-1 not found -- I tried utf8 and iso9660, but they didn't work either

okay, so I did it as root instead of sudo and it worked, don't get that, but whatever. Still won't mount, this is the file-sk: /dev/dm-2: x86 boot sector, code offset 0x58, OEM-ID "BSD 4.4", sectors/cluster 64, heads 255, sectors 3907024821 (volumes > 32 MB) , FAT (32 bit), sectors/FAT 476816, reserved3 0x1000000, reserved 0x1, serial number 0x5cb415f7, label: "SOURCE-PSE " DOS executable (COM), boot code

Well my genius knows no bounds. I did the second method, thinking I wouldn't need the extra space at least for that part, but didn't think about it catting to the other file and needing 3TB total. So I gotta regrab the files. That'll take a while then I'll post my results.
