The most significant difference is the "swinging barrel link (M1911 style) was replaced with a cam system (Browning Hi-Power style)" Can someone explain these systems? Are B, BM and Super B magazines interchangeable? What magazines will work? Is it worth it to hold out for a Super B over a B?

I would think the cam style would be an improvement, as that's one fewer part and one that shouldn't be affected by wear/poor fitting to cause poor lock-up and premature wear on the barrel lugs and, perhaps, slide.
I thought the BM was a compact version, so I'm doubting the mags interchange. I'd recommend asking this stuff at Parallax and gunboards.com, too.
