Unless you have some experience, I'd suggest following the recipe the first time. We can always tell you how to sweeten it if it's too dry for you.
Once you have some experience, you'll be able to try different yeasts and maybe some different ingredients and make it more to your taste. But the first time, I'd suggest going with the original.
I do use lots of different yeasts in different wines and beers to impart a certain characteristic. Most of the time, though, it is a subtle difference. Some yeasts, for example, will help maintain a fruitiness that may be desirable in a fruit wine. Some will be cleaner tasting. It's fun to experiment with them.
