yes, it has more media holding space, but it will take some major construction on the inside of the tank to get it to filter water efficiently.
you'll have to make some sort of partitions that will have holes that filters fit into. you would want water to be forced through filter material, like it does in your HOb
it can be done, but it's not something you can throw together in a few steps.
i suggested the wet/dry because they are constructed to have multiple purposes- the water falls into an area first that has filter material and is forced through that, and then into the bio ball area (a lot of surface area for bacteria, which is dripped on instead of being fully submerged) , and then it also increases water volume.
here is some info on them-

it's really a simple design. perhaps you can turn your 10 into one.
all you really need is to build a chamber to hold the bio balls and another to hold the filter media, and also keep the bio balls wet, by drilling a bunch of holes in the bottom.
here's a pretty simple design-
btw, overflow boxes can also be noisy, and your replacing a HOB
filter with another thing that hangs off of the tank...and then you have a return line that's also hanging off of the tank.
