Hello Fabrizio!
Thank you for these questions. Let's take the easy one first…comparisons between SignWriting, HamNoSys and Stokoe… Here are some links:

2. A Linguistic Comparison: Two Notation Systems for Sign Languages, Stokoe Notation and Sutton SignWriting

3. Writing the Same Signs in Different Transcription Systems: Stokoe, HamNoSys, SignWriting

4. In this published book, they have an entire chapter devoted to comparing the three systems:
