HWIC-4ESW ports are switched ports(Layer2) whereas HWIC-1FE is a routed port (Layer3).

If you want to use HWIC-4ESW as WAN interface, you need to create SVI which will result in performance degradation. Also few features (like shaping) are not supported with SVI.

For WAN connection, it is better to go for HWIC-1FE.
