    Yes you can, I did it like 5 times. I think it is very safe I guess... Waninkoko downgrader.
    Wii Downgrader released.

    Yes, 3.2U is a good firmware to be on.

    Put the .dol file on the SD card. On the SD card create a apps directory and then in the Apps directory create a directory for the specific app and put the .dol into that directory and make sure to rename the .dol to the boot.dol file name. You dir structure should look like :

    \apps\WadManager\boot.dol or boot.elf
    \apps\DVDDowngrager\boot.dol (this is just an example)

    Don't use Waninkoko's downgrader. Use AnyRegion changer instead, its safer, though you'll need internet to do it.

    Here's the link:

    EDIT: Sorry for posting a bad link first, I just had a lot of links before and they got messed up. It should now work though!

    Is there any advantage of being on 3.2 instead of 3.3?

    On 3.3, you need to use GeckoOS to load Trucha signed discs, whereas on 3.2 you don't.
