Yeah, I missed the bit about "libpulse32" earlier... silly me... so
here's where I've gotten:

flash32 works fine for video only
libflashsupport32 is building fine as a lib32 for amd64, except that I'm
guessing it's not actually pulling in the pulse support

libpulse32 -- so I started trying to work on this just using my limited
knowledge of cross-arch builds. It seems to need libasyncns and
libavahi-common, and possibly others. With a bit of work, I was able to
hack together a buildable lib32asyncns. This got me far enough in the
pulse build for it to fail on libavahi, at which point I decided to call
it a day.

Is there some simpler way of handling the builds of libpulse32? Or will
all of pulse's dependencies also need to be made into 32-bit packages as
well? (If there's any more beyond avahi it's probably going to be beyond
me to even attempt it at this point.)
