Wasn't there some passed on idea in the EU about having someone putting on Vader's suit or something?
This was the initial idea for Dark Empire. That the armor would be passed onto someone new. There are touches of this idea in the Old Republic MMO with the armor worn by the Sith Warriors being clear predecessors to Vader's armor.

I thought I heard once the EU did something where Anakin/Vader actually ended up with two Force Ghosts, one of Anakin and one of Vader?
Hey, I'm not saying I like the idea, but it gets you Vader without gutting the redemption at the end of ROTJ.
I think you may be confusing your own ideas or fan canon with the Expanded Universe. The position of the EU has always been Anakin was redeemed.
