Brets are going to be primarily Cavalry & Heavy Cavalry. Your basic strategy is to cross the board and get into combat on turn 2. You've got decent magic iirc and a few nasty surprises with pegasus knights and the Green knight (ethereal).

Empire is a more balanced army that also has Cavalry but can field a solid gunline type army with cannon, hellblasters, archers, pistols, vindicators and sniper rifles.

Brets should put you in mind of Arthurian knights with each model displaying their own family colors, while Empire is based on a later period in central europe and would have a more consistent scheme

Power-wise, Empire would be considered a stronger book, though speculation has a new Bretonnian book this year.

great weapon will give you +2 strength in combat, but you'll strike last unless you charge. They need 2 hands so you can't use a shield. With mounted troops, you only get a +1 strength bonus.

For the command, unit champ will have a better profile and can always attack back even if the front rank has been killed. They can also give and respond to challenges.
Standard bearer gives you +1 combat res and may be allowed to carry a magical banner.
Musicians give the unit +1 to their leadership when attempting to rally, and in the event of tied comabt where the other unit doesn't have a musician will give +1 to combat res.
