What is the difference between using an advance gear and adjusting the distributor for more timing?

The gear changes the cam timing relative to the crank. The distributor changes the spark timing in relation to the cam and crank.

Thanks Dave.

Should I use a +10 gear or stock with increased boost and mild mods?
