Will my images be okay at f22

Whether f/22 on 645 is clean enough for you is somewhat subjective, how big are you blowing up the image? Generally speaking, you'll notice some diffraction softening past f/16, but f/22 shouldn't be drastic. The only way to really know is shoot some tests.
But you'd probably get a more educated response on a forum dedicated to medium format photography rather than cinematography!

It softens the image overall, how much that bothers you is a personal thing and depends on what you're shooting.
I've gone to very narrow apertures to maximise DoF for a forced perspective shot. Moving image with its much lower resolution than stills I don;t think this is so much of an issue.

In terms of refraction, can I shoot nice clean image's at 90mm f22 on 645, I know on 35mm they say don't go to f22, ideal is f16 does that change for medium format? The lens can go upto f32 and the other lens f42
I would not go past 8 or 8/11 on S35.
