does the hot rod deluxe have the same type of sound and tone as the deville?
I know the deville is louder but would that give it better tone?

They'll give a similar tone.
Try them both out and see.
You'll get power amp breakup earlier on the Hot Rod than the Deville.

Means that the tubes in the power amp start to distort when it isn't cranked as loud. If you want lots of clean headroom, the Deville might be better. If you want distorted tones at lower (although still loud) volumes, the Hot Rod Deluxe might be better.
