so another newbie's question come to scene: is ElkArte successor of SMF forum engine?

It's an alternative, it was forked after the development team of SMF at the time disagreed with the direction of SMF so started their own alternative project from the SMF codebase.

How much it codebase differs from SMF in that case?

It contains similarities and the general layout of SMF, but in terms of actual code and its structure its vastly different. Each has it's own market and direction.

Try both and choose the one you prefer.

Is it legal to hide "Powered by ElkArte" logo and how to do this wihout touching default CSS-styles for markup blocks?
Point me to FAQ if it exists, so I'll stop asking newbie's questions :-)

You mean the one in the footer? It’s legal you have to edit the template.

The general accepted situation when you hide this is that you don’t get support.

If you mean the site logo, it’s in the theme section. Just upload your site banner.

The wiki on github provides some answers ... https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/wiki 

Yes there are lots of missing areas, but that is one of those user generated/created zone, so things get added as anyone decides to invest the time, which is rare since finding folks who want to do that is rare.
Be safe, Be kind, Happy Programing
