If i go with the IGBTs, should i just make a small board to insert between the control and power stage so that it will produce the same signal effect?
a intermediary drive board might be better. You'll want the gate drive loop to be as short as possible to ensure that the inductance in the wiring doesn't interfere with turning the switches on and off. Not sure what it looks like now, but it sounds like the control board and driver are pretty far from the gates.
