Besides using a wider stance thus decreasing distance.

Which is considered easier to do in the PL world?

Smaller/leaner guys tend to do more sumo. If you have too much stuff in the way, it is harder to get into a good starting position.
It depends on how the good squatter is built. Some good squatters have long torsos and shorter arms and legs. They typically have to lean too far forward to get a good starting position.
You are right in that a sumo uses muscles more like a squat. My sumo stance and squat stance are pretty much identical.

Personally, it's always felt right to do more of a sumo stance than conventional. Conventional doesn't look or feel natural to me at all, so I rarely do it.
I also avoided squatting until I saw/read about wider stance squatting(never thought of it until someone showed me xD), now I'm addicted to it.
Anyways, conventional feels like it hits my lower back a lot more than sumo ever does. Sumo hits my glutes/hips more than conventional.
