Tricky DJs/raps on both massive attack albums. Karmacoma and Overcome are
the same song, Overcome being the newer version. (Hell Is Round The
Corner and one Portishead song also share a common Isaac Hayes sample.)

No, there is no direct relation between K&D and UFO. As to how UFO's
stuff is... UFO are pretty unique within the acid jazz genre but I think
most list members would agree that their stuff is definitely worth
getting. IMO, both UFO's albums are better than the K&D output that I've
been exposed to. However, since the styles are completely different, it
basically comes down to a matter of taste. Whoever definitely give at
least UFO's self-titled release on Talkin Loud/Verve a listen.
