I am designing a circuit, and using a 3A Switcher for my power supply. I am using an ultrasonic sensor that says it can draw up to 2A when active. How should I protect this from bringing the rest of my rails down? Is Bulk capacitance/series resistance good enough, or should I filter out my other devices more than just a simple decoupl

You shouldn't need more than a few uF for the microcontroller. If it requires more, then something isn't working right.
Are the heatsinks you added to the H bridge electrically isolated from the H bridge? You'll have to post a schematic showing how your MCU and its power supply is related to the H bridge.

From your power supply limits, BJTs are the way to go if the frequency response does not need to go very low. Otherwise, the coupling capacitors and bypass capacitors will run the cost up.
You may be stuck with operational amplifiers.

The time constant of the RC is 5 us and your signal period is 2% of this so there will be little pulse distortion. The average signal on the right is the power supply voltage. The AC component of the input gets put across the capacitor so you will get on the transistor side the same shaped waveform but with the high Vcc+0.1 and the low Vcc-0.1.
