Thanks in advance
What kind of rims are you on right now?
Weight: +103g | Center to DS: -2.2mm | Center to NDS: +1.2mm | Flange Diameter DS , NDS: +15mm , -1mm
G3:. 325g | 17.4mm | 38.0mm | 57.0mm , 57.0mm
Orc: 222g | 19.6mm | 36.8mm | 42.0mm , 58.0mm
*edited the Center to NDS from 36.0 to 36.8
the center to DS is much more telling. at 2mm difference, that's huge. the NDS spoke tension will be a higher percentage of the DS spoke tension with the Alchemy.
I know money is an issue but why on earth would you rebuild? ORC is an expensive hub so you will lose money even if you re-sell at a good price. Then you have to pay for new spokes, a G3 and a rebuild. Better to build an entirely new PT wheel with a rim and spoke count to suit your riding. If you find yourself never using the ORC wheel, sell that intact.

Were are you?
Here in Europe a Power2Max power meter is about the same as a PT-wheel

I think you must not have actually looked at one or read the specs. The DS offset is less on the G3, but the NDS is higher. It will be laterally stiff until one or more NDS spokes go slack due to radial loading.
If you aren't interested in using 11spd cassettes you can probably lace the DS 1x heads-in. And/or use heavier spokes on the DS.
Maybe its time to for healthy dietary focus vs hub focus. My mate went from 300lb to 150lb and its like he is on EPO. Seriously.
Ive got a power tap pro + and love it. The power2max crank gets good reviews on line and is cheap. You can also fit the bb30 axle with a special bottom bracket to fit most BSA frames. Look it up.
