Total War: Rome 2
I have taken to using a general as a 'runner' i use him specifically to recruit, and then upgrade a batch of soldiers, and run them out to my main generals that are out doing the real work, then he returns to my capital to muster more troops. Keep in mind that the game has a 'convert' function, so you can change a building to something of the same type, or deconstruct it entirely to build something different.
So you may need to finish whatever war you're in, and hire a couple agents, and bring your military home to hold down public order for the short term, while you reconstruct your cities with manageable squalor.

Rebels often only appear when your people are unhappy. Squalor and food are 2 of the major things that contribute to a negative happiness of your population. Depending on the strength of your provinces and armies 1 rebel army stack will spawn with a varying strength of 3-20 stacks. However the best troops they get are legionaries if I am not mistaken.
Oh and just FYI the Civil War doomstack spawns have got nothing to do with your people's happiness levels, squalor or food, and they get the best units available for recruiting in the settlement in which they spawned, simply because you are referring to actual Rebels while I was talking about Civil War "rebels" hehe
(what controls the doomstacks as seen here Link is controlled by the influences of the other political factions within your nation)
Info on how to use those mods is a bit sketchy.
