Owning 2016 MB12 and keys sometimes gets stuck. Is this something that is improved with the 2nd gen keyboard on the MBP?

It should be, at least there's likely a reason that Apple pushed it so fast, and made us know it.

But I have had about 20% of the keys on my '16 rMB be weird, and agressive treatments with a vacuum cleaner only fixed some of it. My trackpad didn't click either, so I had the entire top case exchanged on warranty a few weeks ago, and it made an enormous difference. I don't think it is different, but it sure does feel different than the original keyboard the machine had, as i feel all the keys have slightly more 'click' than they did before. So I would recommend you get it fixed by Apple, as you are still under warranty.

I'm on my second keyboard, and the space bar is starting to crap out on me. It's just an embarrassment of a keyboard for an (ostensibly) pro machine.

The keys are way more loud than previous Macs I've owned. Typing on it in a really quiet room can be a little disruptive.

I've not had any problems here, but take that with a grain of salt. Apple's QA is been in the toilet for awhile now.
