The game freaks out like this because you're replacing the pointers to the music table in the wrong order. This is known as one of the wonders if rom hacking!

There are 5 pointers to the music table in the FR rom, and you MUST replace the first one in the ROM LAST. This irrepairably breaks your ROM if you do it wrong, so make sure you make a backup!
Eh? I just replaced them in the order that Ctrl+F found them in HxD, and it worked for me. I figured the tutorial I read that in had just made a mistake somewhere. :\

I'll go update my post, then.

Also, you don't need to manually insert every new song for it to work. Sappy is capable of inserting new music for you if you set it up correctly.
I inserted a song with Sappy. 50% of the inserted data was the actual song. The remaining 50% was worthless ASCII metadata that Sappy wastefully tacked onto the end, for no discernible reason.

Manual insertion is more difficult, but it ensures that you insert only what you need. :\
