To answer your question: Yes, Simgrid can help you simulate the broker 
you described.

However, as you pointed out, Simbatch is quite old and not maintained 
anymore. Furthermore, it does not support SLA. You'd have to implement 
it yourself. Maybe there is a new Simgrid module to simulate batch 
schedulers since Simbatch was written.

I only know the MSG API, so I won't advice you for MSG or SimDAG. I'll 
let the others give you recommendations.
