There is no comparison between towing with a gas burner and a diesel as far as torque is concerned. Yes a hemi will pull the load, but it will always be in the mid-range to upper rpm's to get the job done. The Diesel will be running at a much lower part of the powerband and will be working without hanging it's guts out. As far as side sway, that's a chassis and suspension issue, motor has no affect there.
