Time Machine "like" backup

I keep a bootable smart copy on a external drive. Recently I lost extra files from the external drive when SD deleted them to make the volumes the same. That was my fault.

Question. If I turn on one of the options to either copy "newer files" or "different" files will I be able to keep older copies of files on the backup that are deleted from the original, sort of like Time Machine? Also, if I put files on the external drive will they remain there?

Which option would be the most like Time Machine and retain older copies of files that might have been deleted from the source drive?

The warning in the Users Guide says that the external volume may no longer be bootable if these options are used. Why is that?
