Sense 3 and even sense 4 has a pretty decent launcher.

Very true, I'm running stock rooted on my One X and it's just as smooth as the other launchers. If I want to use something else for a while, I usually go with Launcher7 for the WP7-style look.

The stock Sense that comes with Gingerbread isn't as nice as GO Launcher. It lacks severely in customizability and doesn't run as smoothly at all.

+1 for the ADW recommendations. I installed it last night, and after digging up the setting to fix my wallpaper, I'm really liking ADW. It runs even smoother than GO and Sense. The only things I'm going to miss about GO are the scrollable dock and the ability to change your number of home screen pages. Those are awesome features, and if I can get them in ADW let me know. I don't want to pay for EX if it's lacking.

If you're below 4.0, choose a launcher like ADW or Go Launcher. If you're on or above 4.0, choose something like Nova or Apex. Nova and Apex are based on 4.0 launcher and offer way better features in a cleaner package compared to ADW, which works with 2.1 and up IIRC.

I tried Nova but it would take too long to setup my homescreen again. Anyone know if I can use my Apex backup on Nova? I have pro for both if that makes a difference.

Home screen pages can be adjusted by long pressing a blank area on the home screen and hitting "arrange screens". You can add and subtract screens by hitting the + or x buttons.

The dock bar is scrollable if you have more than 5 items in it(5 is the default, but can be adjusted with the "dock size" option in the app dock settings menu).

Check if nova has a "keep in memory" option. I think this used to happen to me with ADW when I was running stock and didn't have that option ticked.

Anyway, here's my homescreen.

XDA forums for your device
Don't expect a lot of help though. XDA seems to be a bunch of neckbeards who don't really want to help people. I'm sure there are exceptions though.
