There is no difference, bleeding is bleeding.

The whole point of bleeding is remove air bubbles trapped in the hydraulic line. Air bubbles rise, they don't go down. So the key here is to push the air bubbles into the system so they come out the master cylinder. If you're replacing the hydraulic line, you will need to suck fluid into the line (through the slave cylinder) using a fluid evacuator of some kind. Then its much easier to bleed using the method you described above.

I don't even know what a speed bleeder is, but it does take a bunch of sucking to pull oil through an empty line. I've never been very successful with the mighty vac in bleeding brakes. I have a large volume bleeder and it works much better, it just sits there and sucks until oil goes through the line.
