VIM or Emacs on top of IDE, with plugins? [on hold]



I want to use VIM or Emacs on top of IDE with plugins like IdeaVIM (IntelliJ) or Vrapper (for Eclipse). I want to prioritize by following,

  1. Support with most functionality in IDE's
  2. Effective use under IDE.
  3. More natural fit, should retain most of IDE functionality.

Considering above, which one among VIM and Emacs suits better ?

How do I compare two different regions of the same file (buffer)???
Everytime I try to compare 2 regions it seems to demand I select 2 regions from different files!!!
NB: I was recently converted from vim to emacs by a colleague and I'm pleasantly surprised by what emacs has to offer compared to vim. I'm sure some die hard vim fans are turning in their graves, please post your opinions.
Vim vs Emacs vs Sublime [on hold]
Programming Languages

I use Sublime Text for 1.5+ year. I have modest experience with Vim too. The main problem of this editors is that I rarely find the needed plugin.

I want to write my own plugins and personalize the editor as possible. The question is which of these editors: Vim, Emacs or Sublime Text is the most suitable platform for extending?

TLTR: I want to create my own lightsaber. :)

What is the best IDE for C Development / Why use Emacs over an IDE? [closed]
Programming Languages

so as per one of my previous questions, I'm brushing up on my C skills.

My question is, what do people use for developing C?

Lots of people use Emacs, and have done so for years, but is it better to learn emacs than just use an IDE such as Geany or KDevelop?

Would also be interested to hear from those still using emacs, and why they use it over other apps?

Please note that I'm only really interested in the free IDEs / editors.

EDIT:

Thanks for posting links which answer some of my questions, but I guess what I'm really wondering about is:

Whether learning to edit using emacs / vim and compiling / debugging using the gcc-toolchain is worth it instead of just using an IDE, and why?

What are peoples reasons for not migrating to an IDE?

Has anyone moved from terminal-centric development to IDE development, and why did they move?
