will a 32bit pcmcia wlan card work in a 16bit slot?

In a word "No", it needs a Cardbus (32-bit) slot.

the manual says

The PC card slot can accommodate one Type I or Type II PC card. This slot is compatible with
16 bit card and Card Bus. ZV (Zoomed Video) port is not available

The acronym PCMCIA tends to be incorrectly used as a generic term for both 16-bit and 32-bit cards.

PCMCIA is 16-bit, Card Bus is 32-bit and, as your manual says the port supports Card Bus, you can use a 32-bit Wireless Network Adapter in the slot. Examples...

The term PCMCIA is out of date. For some time they've been called PC Cards.
