How are cells different from one another?
Because certain cells work in different areas of the body. For example, for the integummentary system, there would be skin cells because that's the function needed, but a skin cell wouldn't work where there would be a heart cell because only the functions needed that the cell does for the heart wouldn't work for it. Therefore, it would be different.

Why are stem cells better than other cells for helping people?
Stem cells are undifferentiated, which means that they can become anything. A skin cell is only a skin cell, a nerve cell is only a nerve cell, and a skin cell can't do what a nerve cell does, or vice versa. But a stem cell can become either a skin cell or a nerve cell, or any other cell your body has.
