Detonating the suits was an emotional action on his part, rather than a practical one.

Exactly, and one that he could afford to make because he no longer uses the suits as a crutch, as the movie detailed, making it also a practical decision, just not one driven by fear, but of purpose.

Having those suits be nameless design-less drones removes the storyline of Tony being a creative mind who uses his suits and robots as replacement friends, which was kinda the point. And it also would have removed any emotional impact of him getting rid of them for the sake of a real human relationship.

He demonstrated in the film, and double explained it at the end, just because he doesn't have any tech at the moment doesn't mean he can't/won't whip something up as needed in a heartbeat. The first suit in a cave took 3 days. The second suit took what? 5 Hours?
