    not under same conditions.
    if you use pro features which effect the system (e.g. bitlocker) than it might make a (small) difference.

    You can ONLY upgrade to PRO not the normal version.

    plus some other stuff like group policy/client hyper v/remote desktop and crap

    There are differences; just not in performance.
