If you mean 'Small World + Small World Underground' by the second option, definitely go for the first. Small World and Small World Underground are both base games. There are some options to combine the two, but simply getting one of them, potentially with an expansion, will be money better spent.

Get the base set that you like more and then check the expansions for the races and get what looks more interesting.

I can recommend getting Small World: Tales and Legends since it adds events to the game. Or the Small World: Necromancer Island if you want a 1vsAll mode.

I think so. But to be 100% sure I have to check the cards...

I checked pictures of the cards:

There are 5 cards in the deck that refer to the terrain used in SW but you can adapt them to SW:U, so I see no problem.

+1 to a game and expansions. I think buying SW and SWU is something you'd end up doing after deciding on wanting it all. But I think it runs the risk of being overkill to start with. All expansions do a decent enough job being good with whatever base game you have so don't worry about that and with tunnels everything seems to mash up well enough so no matter how you start it'll work out well.
