All paintball markers shoot at the same speed, up to 300 fps max
All paintballs weigh the same amount

THUS!

All paintball markers shoot the same distance (for all intents and purposes)

A barrel with heavy porting will be quiet
And accuracy is more dependent on the quality of the paintballs you are shooting

With all that said, I'd look into the J&J Ceramic Barrel

My favorite barrel brand of all time
They're fantastic

if it doesnt help does a longer one hurt the performance?
It can. There is a point where the gas behind the ball stops expanding and the extra length begins to cause drag on the ball. That means it then requires more air to push the ball to the desired velocity hurting efficiency. Really it is debatable how important that extra handful of shots is per fill so just use whatever length of barrel you find comfortable or fun to use.
