MDs from the US are better respected than DOs. DoOs are still preferred to IMGs because they have a US training.
Your chances to get into residency in a DO program may be enhanced just because you will have real US experience and if you do well during the rotations, you can obtain great LORs and that may help. Rotations is what makes the difference, I don't understand why you hate those. How are you gonna get letters?
You may need to retake the exams if you took them long time ago as there is a 7-year limit in most states.
