You will be controlling chair direction and speed with voltage using power transistors.
So a 6V, 8V, 9V or 12Volt motor will not make a big impact as long as all motors are the same.

This group of small motors usually are low torque and high speed
which is Not suitable for driving a robot.

You need a gear-head Lego like motor around 1 or 2 RPM.

Depends on what motor you can find that will be able to drive it. You need to consider how much the overall chair and occupant will weigh and how much torque will be needed to move it the speed you want. Than you can find a motor that can deliver that torque or can be geared down to deliver the torque you need. Chances are the motors you'll be looking at will be 12V, 24V, or 48V motors.
