Educate me on big wheel stance

Sorry if this is too basic.

I have 2019 RG. I'm about to add my personal touches via rear bags and fender but also would like to go to a 26" front wheel and tire. I'm not set on a 26 but from what I have read its regarded as better handling than a 30.

I've seen bikes that look like they sit really high (like a 4x4) and others that are slammed down low. I prefer the slammed look but do not know enough about this to know what makes the difference. Is there a site or somewhere I can get a grip on all of this? See the pics attached. These are all beautiful bikes and no disresepct to the first one but that's not the look I want.

Also, is there a relationship to be kept between front and rear wheel diameters?

First bike has no air ride front or rear, sits high on stock suspension. Second bike has aftermarket front and rear air ride and its lowered down.
