I think you missed the point, SFTP and FTP are unrelated.. the only thing the share is the name and the fact they transfer files in some manner.

1A) How can you compare 2 entirely different things? they both transfer files.. that's it.
2A) PureFTPd supports FTP, i.e: RFC 959.. and RFC 4127, FTP with TLS encryption.. as I keep saying, SFTP is "unrelated" to the FTP protocol... it's a method of transferring files over the "SSH" protocol.
3A) No, SSH uses system accounts.
4A) No.

Hope that helps.
