I don't understand why you are stressing ventilation so much. It isn't really a problem with most external drives.

As for the speed, anything less than 7200 RPM will probably be fairly noticeable. Why not just go with 7200?

no I wasn't joking, if the thing gets too hot, unplug it, let it cool down for a bit then plug it back in if you need it. or get whatever you want off of it, then unplug it for a while.
and ventilation is not a big issue with externals.
