So, my fiance & I were all set-5 maids, 5 groomsmen, my brother being one of them. However, he's now threatening to pull out of the wedding because he wants his girlfriend to serve as a maid. I really don't want to add her in-for one, I'm not buddy-buddy with her; two, that would throw the symmetry off. We'd have to find another groomsman to suffice if she were to serve as a maid, & not sure who.
I've always had a close relationship with my brother & have always wanted him to serve in my wedding, & now this is going down.
I don't know what to do anymore.

You shouldn't be forced to put a person you have next to no relationship with in your wedding party. I'm not sure what etiquette dictates in this situation, but his behaviour strikes me as very childish. For example, in my cousin's wedding, her sister was her matron of honour, but her husband was not a groomsman. Your brother does not get to dictate who is in the wedding party. If he's going to be so childish as to make demands about *your* wedding, he shouldn't be a part of the wedding party.1
