Advantages of 12 speed over 10 speed with Wolf Tooth????

I'm paralyzed and ride a handcycle. I converted it to 1x10 with a sunrace cassette with 50 tooth low gear and added a Wolf Tooth Roadlink. For a while it worked just fine; after a summer I replaced the rear derailleur cause I stripped out the b screw. With the new derailleur (SRAM GX) it worked great for about 3 weeks. Now I can get it to shift well on the low 3 gears or the high 5 gears, but I can't have both at the same time.

I'm wondering if converting to 12 speed would get rid of needing to use the Roadlink...???? I realize I would need to use a cassette that could fit on my 135mm hub & frame, and replace chains (I'll need to link 2 of them together, derail, and shifter.

Is this a good idea? Is there a better idea I haven't thought of?
