 RE: What kind of clarinet should I buy?

You are going to have certain difficulties finding an intermediate-level instrument for only $500. It can be done, but it will take research, since prices for new intermediates (Buffet E-11, E-12 and the like) run closer to $750-1200. Used ones, if they've been used a long time, can run closer to $450. I bought an eight-year-old E-11 for that much (newly padded etc). It's a great instrument, but it was chance that I had the opportunity to get it. New student plastic clarinets are in the neighborhood of $300. So look around, do research, consider spending more if possible, and definitely play the clarinet you want before you decide to buy it. I wish you luck.
