i mean im asking whether u can replace Than with compared to.
A: Yes! You can use commas too: “Studying, compared to sports training, is better for the future.”

Whichever one you like more. I think the “—“ makes it look like there is more emphasis on the words in between the two hyphens.

Least noisy = quietest (superlative)
less noisy = quieter (comparative)

In sentences

That dog is the least noisy
That dog is the quietest

...I'm pretty sure you can tack on the "er" to just about all the colors (it would also sound natural to say "more ____" ) If both colors are the same, but one is darker/lighter, then you would say "this one is lighter blue" And if you are saying that it is menos azul que, it translates to "less blue." -you probably already know that though :)
