What I mean is, when you see someone who has a HUGE chest or very short arms, is it easier for them to bench because they don't have to move the weight as far? Or does leverage or something come into play so it all comes out even with someone with a smaller chest or longer arms?

i think it's easier to bench if you have a smaller range of motion
Yes! Guys with shorter arms and legs have an advantage. Specifically because they dont have to move the weight as far.
they still go through all the same ROM angles, but they do have an advantage from not having to move the weight as far. of course, guys with a pretty mesomorphic body type like me have an advantage in squats/bench but will eventually find dl's quite hard because we have such long backs for our heights.
work = force x distance, ROM has been covered before, search.
