My server (Ubuntu 16.04, i7-6600k) has 32GB RAM total, and when I use AMP (latest), it allocates 31 of the 32, leaving my Minecraft server virtually 0 when I need minimum 8gb there. How do I go about allocating 12GB RAM to ARK?

There's no such thing as RAM allocations. Applications use as much RAM as they need until the system runs out. Applications running inside Java are the exception because of how the java virtual machine works. You can use a container to limit it but that just means it'll start swapping to storage and killing the performance.
