So I'm playing through Brilliant Diamond. Right now just got to the move tutor and saw that he could teach my Technician Ambipom Dual chop. I'm curious if its worth replacing Double Hit for Dual Chop because the move has a higher power (40 vs 35). Is the 5 extra power worth it to give up the STAB ambipom gets from Double Hit?

No. STAB is a 1.5x multiplier, so Double Hit effectively has 52.5 power per hit when used by a normal type like Ambipom.
