You will want to use 32bit floating point as the export format,
as that is the ardour's native format, and no conversion will
be needed guaranteeing the highest audio quality.  How are you
exporting?  From the Session->Export menu?  Or are you trying
to save a specific region?  Each channel in a recorded stereo region in
ardour is actually a separate mono file on disk, so whatever operation
you are using appears to have a bug.  Can you describe *exactly*
the operations you used at every step?

Joining two mono regions into a stereo region is not currently
possible in ardour.
