What are the differences between racketball and squash string then? Any?

This is something I could not tell you because I don't play either.

17 and 18 gauge multifilaments work well.
Prince Premier Attack 17 should fit the bill. Others to consider are Ashaway Ultrakill/Dynamite and Isospeed Classic.
LightningXX 17 is more durable but less feel/comfort than the multis.

Racquetball and squash strings are quite similar, usually thin, soft and powerful.
Many strings that are too powerful and/or fragile at tennis tensions do just fine in the 20's or 30's for squash and racquetball.

Best squash string by a mild is Tecnifibre 305 green or Tec 305 + black. Used by 6 of the top 10 players in the world.

But TW doesn't sell it. :(

Try Kirschbaum's Touch Multifiber
 
You may want to try Kirschbuam's Touch Multifiber in 17g (1.25) as it's a very soft playing string with good power. Very close to Wilson's NXT and Technifiber's mulitifber but less cost! I do believe they make a 1.20 too but TW doesn't carry that guage......

I play both squash and tennis and string for myself and friends. Believe it or not, I've had great success with Gamma Synthetic Gut 18. I've also strung it on a few of my squash partners and they like the power it has. Also, Ashaway Dynamite 18 is good and has the same composition as Ashaway squash strings.
