Choice of which database to use is a matter of what and how the database is to be used. You have listed only two open source choices and there are certainly more such as MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Firebird server and even others.

This forum is about LibreOffice (Base in this case) and not specifically about databases, their functionality, and certainly not which is better of worse for someone's use. You need to research these on other sites for more information.

And yes, you can run HSQLDB in server mode and then use Base to connect to it.
