Square meters are a measure of area, not length. Therefore you could use square meters to measure the area of a basketball court.

None! They both mean the same thing. For example, if your floor measures 3 meters long and 2 meters wide you would need 6 square meters of carpet. Alternatively you could say "My floor measures 6 meters squared." Five meters squared. This refers to a linear measure, five meters. It also tells what function to apply to the measure-- make a square with it. If I make a square with a five meter chain, I will end up with 25 square meters. Five square meters. This will be equivalent to five of the 25 squares that the above area contains. Quite different. If you have a floor measuring 3 meters by 2 meters and you ask the carpet guy for carpeting to cover 6 meters squared, you will get an unpleasant surprise.

Square meters is a measure of area and must be expressed in square feet if converting. It would equate to 75347.37 square feet

I'm assuming you mean 430 square meters. "Meters" by itself is a measure of length, not area, like acres. 430 square meters would be a rectangular area, for example, of 43 meters by 10 meters. If this is not your measurement, then you need to re-measure.430 square meters = 0.10625531403 of an acre

This depends on the area you live in and how much area there is. If you lived in the US, you would more likely measure by hectares, acres, and other units of area. However, if you live in Great Britain, Asia or Australia and other parts of the world, you would more likely use square meters and centimeters. Now to your question. Which unit would you use to measure area: square centimeters or square meters? If I were to draw a square on a piece of paper, it would not match up to a single meter in length so I would measure by square centimeters (GB) or square inches (US). But if I were to measure larger areas such as land, I would measure in square meters (GB) or square feet and hectares (US).

Square meters is a measure of area while cubic meters is a measure of volume. One cannot simply be converted to the other. If the shape is a prism with area of the base equuals 388 square meters, you would multiply 388 by the height in meters to get volume in cubic meters. If it is another shape, you would need to find the volume in cubic meters by another method.
