Mix and match different rear offsets?

So I have a set of 19" NKB elite 7 wheels. The rears are 19x9.5 and one has developed 2 cracks in it. To me, it is too risky to even ask to have the wheel repaired. Since NKB are discontinued, the Miro 111 is almost an EXACT replica of the wheel. I am wondering if it is bad to mix offsets on the rear.

NKB: et +30 (per website, seller said +35)
Miro 111: et +33

Could I buy just one or do I need to replace both rear wheels? From a cost perspective I would much rather replace just one.

Please advise.

They are either 2mm or 3mm off which is not all that much.You can either use them the way they are or use 3mm wheel spacer on the Miro 111, longer bolts would not be required.

If i were to run no spacers, would there be any difference other than looks? Meaning would it put additional stress on the rear diff or cause it to be "unbalanced" that would make a vibration or noise?

no, you won't notice it, the car is not 100% symmetrical anyhow.
