Default AR Pistol Build Question

I am planning a pistol build and starting to acquire parts. I am thinking of a truck gun with a 10" barrel. My question is with a 10" barrel do I need a carbine or pistol length gas system? Will either work?

Also, I haven't decided between 5.56 or 300 BO, would one require a different gas system?

Pistol on either the 5.56 or 300 in 10”.

It depends on the barrel, I've seen pistol and midlength on 10in barrels.

Is there any need/benefit for an adjustable gas block?

If you plan on suppressing it, yes there is benefit from adjustable gas block.
