If you shouldn't find an appropriate chorus effect, you could try a
single (no feedback) very short delay. Original sound e.g. between left
and centre and short delayed between centre and right. This is
missing the detune component, perhaps keeping the original as is and
the delayed with minimal pitch correction or pitch change could help to
get the detune effect.

Instead of playing 2 times the same power chord rock guitar to get a
rich sound, a guitar rotary effect could be used. It shouldn't sound as
a Leslie emulation, instead it should sound similar to an unobtrusive
chorus and phasing alike effect. I neither used this with vocals, nor
do I know if there is a rotary plugin available, that isn't just another
Leslie emulation.

For vocals I just used singing two times the same part, btw. this is my
favourite to get a chorus effect alike sound and I also used the single
short delay effect, but without pitch correction or pitch change effect.
