You may wish to consult J.D. G. Dunn's commentary on Romans published by
"Word" publishers. It is two volumes, but I think all of the material you
want is in vol 1.
He deals quite thoroughly with the significant variants.
Then I would consult Ulrich Wilckens "Der Brief an die Romer"
And of course you should look at Bruce Metzgers' "Textual Commentary on the
Greek New Testament".
Best wishes on your work.
