The length is resistance and also a bit reaction time. Because it is your fuel pump you can control it a bit with the length of the pressure hose.
In the past there were some problems with a short line so people were using longer lines but today there are pressure chambers solving a lot.

Could be. A short line is giving hard pulses in the tank. A chamber act as an expansion chamber damping the hard pulses and building up a more constant pressure.
A longer hose works almost the same.

One of the common issues with a bad pressure is the cogging with a full tank.

I have been told to run my pressure tube 1 & 1/2 lengths of my pipe and header, I am not running a pressure chamber just straight to the tank.

Thanks
Andrew
