Unless there's some reason for it not to be included, Rainwarrior's updated NSFplay is pretty much the go-to reference for accurate NSF playback. The winamp plugin (in_yansf.dll) is included with the standalone player download. http://rainwarrior.ca/projects/nsfplay/
It hasn't been updated in a while but it's open source and Brad is still maintaining it - he's busy working on his NES game, though.
On a related note, http://ocremix.org/artist/4477/brad-smith's homepage should probably be updated to http://rainwarrior.ca/.
I'm no judge but when it comes to mastering, as long as the loudest part of your song is limited to at least -3 dB. It should be acceptable. But if your song is -16 dB at the loudest point then that'll probably be too low.
