They have pressure and flow if I read this correctly and the difference is application.   Plastic is for cold water and metal is for hot, or either.

That does not necessarily mean that fittings to the pump will be the same????

As above, yes they are interchangable and I have changed the plastic one on my Sylvia to the metal one when I rebuilt it, no change of fittings or function.

Was there any difference in noise level between the two pumps?

No, it is the same pump with fittings made from different materials, that's all.
