There are various of rootstocks available. I am wondering if anyone here can give me a comprehensive guide of selecting rootstocks that are best suited for clay, wet soil of zone 5 for Asian pear, Asian Plum, European Plum, Apricot, Peach, etc..

Probably Mariana is your best choice; although there may be some new hybrids that are better. Check what rootstock you local nursery is using for the trees they sell; any reputable nurseryman would try to sell trees that have the best chance to succeed in the local environment.... Please do not confuse reputable with Big Box stores.
