For the "default" alsa device to behave differently depending on whether
pasuspender is running or not requires either pasuspender to mess with alsa's
configuration files, or changing the definition of "default" so that it always
checks whether pasuspender is running when it's used. Both are pretty ugly

For comparing pulseaudio and direct alsa output in wine, I'd change wine
configuration to use some other device than "default" when using alsa directly.
Like this:

pasuspender bash
(new shell opens)
wine --audio=alsa:device=hw:0 program.exe
(program.exe is runs and uses hw:0 for audio)
(you close the program and you're back in the shell)
(the new shell exits and pasuspender finishes)

I did not understand why you would use pasuspender with jack, and what changes
you need for that to work well. If you're using jack2, then jackd should be
able to take over the alsa devices automatically. If you're using jack1, then
I'd like to hear a good reason why.
