I think there is another option:
d) the shaman has one tradition knowledge per organised tradition and the loose spirits are added to his primary
tradition, cause that's the one he grew up with

IMO the personal tradtion is not a new ability, it's more like your primary tradition becomes more personal. So there is no meta-skill and you can handle every formerly loose spirit with your [primary tradition] knowledge.
