Questions about male rats?

I am still debating whether a male or female will be best if my mom says yes to rats. So I believe males will be much better but I have a few questions.. How bad is the musky smell, and will it stink up my room? Are male rats still active at times? If I got two male rats from the same pet store, will they have big dominance issues?
