I'm looking to buy an actual Shulchan Aruch, not a Kitzur. I already own the Artscroll Kitzur and, while it is an amazing work, doesn't help very much when I want to research the actual halacha, where it comes from, and how it applies to a Sefard like myself. Is there an edition out there which is the whole original Shulchan Aruch by Yosef Karo in Hebrew and English?

Some partial English translation are available, see here:
But to answer your question, no there is no purchasable Hebrew/English Shulchan Aruch available. (If you just need Orach Chayim, the English translation of the Mishneh Berurah might suffice, although of course it lacks all of the other commentaries)
don't think there's. as jake mentioned there's a translation of the mishna berura, it covers orah haim. there are some parts but I also didn't find it all translated.
in any case my suggestion is to learn hebrew, even if there was a translation they are not always perfect as a general rule and more so to a book like shulhan aruch that each word is chosen and has dierent impact but no good relections in english, like using אין instead of asur. what I mean is that using a translation is like asking for someone to read it for you, you can get and idea but you are not really going to the source
