Your throw distance is about 9'6" or it IS 9'6"?
Your screen size is how large?
Your distance from ceiling to center of lens is how much?
Your distance from ceiling to top of screen is how much?
What is your current projector that is in use?
You likely have Epson with full lens shift, which by the way is about the most of any projector in the industry. That matters a great deal, because not one projector you listed has any useful lens shift whatsoever. Not ONE. So, those are all off the table.
You need to start with projectors that have good lens shift, which includes the Epson 5030, the Panasonic AE8000, perhaps the BenQ W7000. But, you also need to figure out if the projector will hit your screen size from your throw distance.
There's quite a bit to consider, and we don't have enough information to know how to help you out here beyond a few random statements.
