One difference is the sweet spot size. On a wood bat the sweet spot is about 3 inches. On an aluminum bat it is about doubled. Another reason is that the way wood bats are made, they don't get as much pop as an aluminum. I personally like swinging wood more aluminum because you have to swing harder with wood, which would eventually allow you to hit the ball farther with aluminum.

What type of bat will a baseball come off of better plastic aluminum or wooden bats?

baseballs come off an aluminum bat faster and harder, than they do on a wooden bat. that is why in the MLB they make the players use wooden bats, to prevent serious injury. i myself perfer to use and practice with a wooden bat in the off season, because it teaches you to use the right mechanics to hit the ball harder and farther. but during games i use an aluminum ball bat, and during practice i use a wooden bat. i would restrain from using a carbon-fiber bat because they have a tendency to crack and break. but that is just my opinion on carbon fiber bats.

Would a wooden or metal hit a baseball farther?

It depends on how the ball is hit. Metal, or aluminum bats, have a larger sweet spot. A sweet spot is the place on the bat where it is possible to hit the ball with the most power and control. On wooden bats, the sweet spot is smaller than on aluminum bats, but the sweet spot is denser, and will give you more power. However, this is a generalization. Certain types of wood have different sweet spots, for example, maple bats have bigger and softer sweet spots than ash bats. Also, certain types of metal are different. Overall, wood bats can hit a ball farther, but it is harder to hit with a wood bats' full power.
