The Inferno Gates cost too much to be really powerful and it requires nothing but Inferno cities so the value goes away once you reach into enemy/neutral territory.
I'm not an Inferno player, but I think some of the main inferno strengths are
1) Early efreets. Can get the lava lake rly early.
2) Demon raising. Sacrificing familiars only to raise demons with pit lords.

I guess it would be the most challenging town to play for a beginner.


As for the balance between towns discussion, I'd refer to WCL statistics page on http://www.heroes-iii.com/

Sure, the game is not perfectly balanced, but win:loss ratios for towns are quite close to being 50:50, so I'd say - don't bother too much with it, just play the town you personally like best.
