I would like to know how important is the depth of a thrue-the-wall air conditioner... I've found one that fits the lenght and width but is about 7 inches bigger in depth. How would this affect the conditoner and the room?

It could be the control board. I found out that this model air conditoner has had problems with moisture getting in the control panel and shorting it out when it's humid outside. I have the part number if anyone wants it. It cost me about $45 from Sears Parts.
window mount doesn't have to extend out on the back to clear the side /top intake vents because a window is about 2" thick, but a wall mount has to have about 6 to 8 " clearing before the intakes vents can be exposed. you can't have your intakes buried in the wall. in short if you see about 8 " of dead metal in the center area (just behind the window sill) then you can mount it in a wall as it will protrude far enough to clear the side /top intakes.
a sleeve just gives you a way to balance / attach to the outside wall
