what you described were all features of the bike rack. Nothing to do with the hitch.
the only thing you need to worry about with the hitch is what the receiver size is (1 1/4 or 2"), but as you noted, a lot of racks now work on either size.
I have a Yakima that does all the things you mentioned (swing down, fold up arms, either size receiver) that is very nice, and you do want all those features if possible IMO.
For the hitch, try to get the one (probably the hidden hitch) that tucks up and out of the way the best. some of these hang down really low.

if you are only using a bike rack, you dont actually need a drawbar or ball mount, although it will probably come with the ball mount (but not the ball). You just wont need to use it
