Ok, still pondering the AR for myself, and to teach my wife. I think that for low light in house use the use of a red dot sight makes a lot of sense, plus I think my wife would be comfortable with it now that she is getting her monkey gun with the light and reddot. So, best for this use, buy a rifle with no sights and set up for an optic, then add backup folding sights, or go with the removeable  carry handle and sight which can be removed. Does the front sight interfere or not.

In my experience, the front sight post does not interfere with a red dot.  Now that experience is rather limited, so take it for what it is worth.  Personally, I think I'd go with the back-up folding sights if they are to serve second-fiddle to the red dot.  The son-in-law has that setup on his duty AR and I like it.

FSP does not impact RDS usage except at ranges where parallax is "a thing", at which point the FSP can be used as a reference point to keep the dot in the same part of the "window" each time, preventing zero-shift due to parallax.

For a house gun, I would run fixed FSP and fixed rear sight. Neither cause me an issue with a RDS, and if there is ever an issue with the RDS, the irons are right in your face and ready to roll. There shouldn't be any discernible transition time.
