I was arrested for DWI alcohol; BAC of .12. I was booked, release on OR, and two days later I get a call from the APD saying that their narcotics division, or detective (i really don't remember), can help me out with my DWI case if I know any drug dealers and would be willing to participate in a sting operation.

If you already have a permanent revocation, which you should, I would think you will never be issued a license again....
Someone told me that was how their case was wrapped up.
Not in any county I know of. The best offer you can get from a DWI is a violation driving while ability impaired.
