Generally you will need a 5MT clutch to fit inside your 5MT. An uprated 5MT clutch can be used in your eventual 6MT or you can switch to a 6MT clutch and flywheel when you do the 6MT swap.
As for the clutch recommendation request, you are going to get varied opinions that may/may not match up to what you really need. I suggest reading the Clutch FAQs. Also read some reviews of clutches that seem to meet your engine's torque output, your driving style, and how you plan to use the car.
**Some have gound out the bellhousing on a 5MT to fit a 6MT clutch inside. I'm not suggesting that method but it is an option you can contemplate.**

i used my 5 spd clutch and flywheel when the 6mt was installed, reason is I had just replaced the clutch. when it went installed the 6 spd flywheel and a 6mt clutch.

i've heard* the 6 spd flywheel can be used in a 5 spd with some milling on the ribs in the 5 mt casing.

6MT flywheel is not going to work with a 5MT clutch though. As noted, the 6MT flywheel and 6MT clutch can be used in a 5MT but it needs a decent amount of grinding inside the bell housing. More than I would be willing to do.

Just put in a 5MT clutch to get you by for now then swap out for the 6MT parts once you swap the trans in. OR buy an uprated 5MT clutch and use that with the 5MT then the 6MT. When it wears out then switch to the 6MT parts. you have a 2002 WRX so at lease you are already a pull-type clutch design. Best of luck.
