MIUI 13 Changes between Chinese and EU ROM

I am planning to get a Xiaomi 12S Ultra for myself. I know that installing Google Play store is easy on the Chinese ROM. But seems like EU ROM is more friendly for Google users. Now is there any documentation saying what are the changes between Chinese and EU ROMs? What has been removed and what has been added? For example will there is MI Dialer or Google Dialer etc.?

Would really appreciate if you could point me to such document.

Btw, I noticed the stable release supports xiaomi 12s ultra but the latest weekly release don't have xiaomi 12s ultra in listed supported models.
Can we still try them on our phone or are we limited to just stable for now?
