When it comes to homebrew, is there anything the PS Classic does better than the SNES Classic?

I thought it's already known that it can do homebrew. It's basically a Linux system running PCSX ReArmed.

The hardware is comparable, but the controller is better on the PSOne, and it generally has a better casing (PSOne > SNES on aesthetics).

It's easier to setup homebrew. With Autobleem, it's just drag and drop files onto a usb stick.

PSC has better CPU & significantly more RAM.

Is there a way to remove the built in games and use the space to store our own games?

I don't like the idea of having a USB attached to my unit.

Fully supported ultra-slim USB 2.0 64GB drive. Hardly noticeable sticking out.

Yes, but more risky & far more complicated.

Also possible to update the default emulator, but probably not worth it?
