One difference is that the SHM refclock is always in UTC, while the
PHC can be in TAI or UTC, so you don't have to deal with the offset
between TAI and UTC. Another difference is that the SHM refclock will
stop when the PHC is not synchronized by PTP.

No, you shouldn't need to specify any offset for that unless you have
measured the amount of asymmetry in the delay. The delay is assumed to
be symmetric and the measurements are automatically corrected by half
of the delay.
