I'd Choose Volcanora because it's a very good sweeper and you need more special attack based pokemon, emboar is slow and somehow weak (to special attacks)

I would choose Volcarona for it's great Sp. Attack and good stabs. I would replace Solar beam with Fire blast

I would choose Volcarona over Emboar because of it's AMAZING special attack. You have a lot of pokemon in your party that have good attack and you could fill in that gap with him.

I would go with Volcarona but this is a better moveset to use

Quiver Dance( Powering him up very nicely )
Flamethrower ( Found in the abundant shrine, and powerful STAB )
Bug Buzz ( Bug type STAB )
Psychic ( Solar beam takes too long, psychic is pretty nice after a quiver dance or two )

if you DID use Emboar then I would use this set

Flare Blitz
Wild Charge
Head Smash
Hammer Arm

I would swap flamethrower with fire blast, it makes use of quiver dance's accuracy boost, although give it a few pp ups because of low pp
Pakey, Quiver dance doesn't give an accuracy boost, it only ups speed, sp atk, and sp def
Quiver dance raises special attack, special defense and speed while coil raises attack, defense and accuracy
