I don't think Buggy was ever much of a coward, the only time he was proper scared was when it concerned going up against Whitebeard which not many people would want to have done all things considered! None of the Marines seemed particularly up for the challenge at the time either, Sengoku included.
If anything Buggy was always surprised rather than scared, like "OMG ITS YOU LUFFY!?" "WHATS WRONG WITH THIS FLOOR!?" (back on impel down) and so on, with a mix of "who said what about my nose!?".
I think as a clown he often played jokes along the lines of being surprised by how stupid people would be and how they would believe him even though he knows how much of a dirty back stabbing scoundrel he actually is at heart!
Observation haki would be reasonably good on him if any haki, to predict and think strategically would suit him given his powers and strengths.
Then I think we need a thread "What if Usopp wouldnt had joined Straw hats
I think everything would be pretty much the same, except Luffy would have to ask Franky to shoot down the WG flag at EL since Usopp would presumably not have asked Sogeking to help the Straw Hats rescue Robin. And now that I'm thinking about it, I guess the Straw Hats would have all been defeated by Perona on Thriller Bark.

Nah, it wouldn't matter what Shanks's desires were, Buggy wants treasure bad enough to badger Shanks into collecting all the famous treasures that he has been trying and failing (pre-timeskip) to find, until they claimed even One Piece as their own. Shanks's power coupled with Buggy's greed and ambition would make a very potent combo IMO.

Ditto. It'd be like Vegeta becoming Goku's best friend and not holding a grudge against anymore for being stronger than him. Somethings in a story are just too powerful like that to change and Buggy being a part of any crew, especially Shanks's crew, would suck. I don't think, Oda would ever do that one.
