For switches I would recommend checking out reviews and sound tests of Gazzew Boba U4 or Boba Pink Linear (sometimes called bobagum) or silent Gateron Inks. I haven't tried Cherry MX Silent Reds but every review I saw said they were scratchy. As for O-Rings, you can put them on pretty much any keycaps and they will reduce the sound, but make the keys feel mushy as a result. From the sound tests I heard you probably wouldn't need them on Bobas or other good silent switches if they are in a board that has some sound dampening.
