My info may be out of date, but I've had great success with:

AR5008, AR5008X, and BCM94322/*1 chipsets in half and full-length form factors. AR928X/AR9285 requires a simple kext edit on certain versions.

I have no experience with combo Bluetooth cards, although I hear there is one Realtek that works. Don't bother with Intel. Make sure your BIOS doesn't have a whitelist; otherwise it will not boot with the new card. The driver loaded for a half-height AR9380, but no WIFI networks were visible...somewhere on 10.7.* or 10.8.*; I have shelved it for now, even though it should be supported.
