Hacking Emulation Persona 1 & 2 (IS + EP) settings for PPSSPP on Switch

In light of the recent release of the Persona 2 translation, I wanted to play both on Switch OLED. And play through the first game before that, of course. I installed the latest release of PPSSPP (version from 2020/03/11), and when I try to run any of these games, I already get distorted audio and low frame rates in the menu. Thought it might be worth overclocking my console a little via sys-clk, but the sound and framerate never got back to normal, although this trick worked in other emulated games like Tekken 6.

So, I would like to ask the advice of knowledgeable people, what settings in PPSSPP and/or sys-clk can be set in order to get an experience that is not worse than on the original PSP?
Of course, I would also like to play with the HD interface textures from GameBanana. Does it affect performance too much?

My settings in PPSSPP:

Backend: OpenGL
Mode: Buffered rendering
Simulate block transfer effects: OK
Software rendering (slow): NO

Software skinning: NO

Spline/Bezier curves quality: High
Hardware tesselation: NO

Upscale level: Auto
Upscale type: xBRZ
Deposterize: OK
