There are three main differences between Alter Self and Disguise Self, and No, Alter self is not Always Better. It's not even necessarily superior. First and most important difference. Alter Self is a concentration spell that lasts up to an hour, Disguise self lasts for 1 hour without concentration. This means that while casting alter self, you can not ...

To answer the title question: Yes. Alter Self is a much more powerful disguise effect, allowing you to reconfigure your disguise as often as needed during the duration and not allowing an automatic save when you get interacted with physically because your transformation is real, not an illusion.

Complete Arcane's rules for Weaponlike Spells specify that all weaponlike spells are finessable (may use dex instead of str to hit with the Weapon Finesse feat). Eldritch Blast is a weaponlike spell explicitly, and Eldritch Glaive is a Blast Essence Invocation - it modifies, but does not change anything it doesn't say it changes, the properties of Eldritch ...

Page 71 of Complete Arcane specifies that eldritch blast is weaponlike. As eldritch glaive is a blast shape and thus an extension to the eldritch blast ability, it is also weaponlike and thus usable with Weapon Finesse.
