Ok. Starting with 1. I remember from ages ago that you can choose chris or jill to play as. Does that affect anything beyond lockpicks vs lighter?

Chris is more resilient, but has two fewer slots to hold items. Trust me, those two extra slots count for a lot.

Jill:
+ Eight inventory slots
+ Access to grenade launcher
+ Lockpick
+ Barry can save her butt once or twice, including early access to shotgun
+ Saving Richard almost immediately gives access to the better assault shotgun
- Less health

Chris:
+ Rebecca can heal him for free in two areas (temporarily)
+ More health
+ Free space for lighter
+ 10% chance of critical headshot (headsplosion) when using a handgun (he's the team marksman)
- Six inventory slots instead of eight
- Must use Old Keys in an inventory slot instead of having a free lockpick
- Saving Richard gives you the Assault Shotgun much later
Play games, not companies.

Yes, it afects parts of the story, what order you can go into rooms and chris only has 6 item slots to Jills 8 but has a little more health than her.

first time through REmake Jill tends to be the better choice. chris' route is generally more difficult.

Oh don't forget once you leave a room any damage you do to an enemy doesn't carry over. So if you shot a zombie 6 times, leave, then come fight him again he's back to full health. So if you plan on killing something stay till it's dead.

play the remake, it's the best in the series

i also really enjoyed RE5 alot, 4 is classic but i have issues with it now that i'm spoiled playing 5 and it's faster aiming and live inventory . 6 is a complete mess , some parts are good and most of it sucks XD

If you're absolutely going to play both, start with RE0. It's nowhere near as good as REmake.

I mean, it's still good, but REmake is one of the all-time greats.

You cannot play Zero without some classic RE knowledge. He'll get too frustrated and never give REmake a shot. Also Zero (if story matters at all) sorta spoils the end of REmake so just a cherry on top of the reason why REmake must be payed 1st.
