Buying ETFs based in US while living in Switzerland - using swiss broker

Hello. I live in Switzerland and recently opened a Corner Trader Account. Im mainly interested in ETFs. I want to invest in some US ETFs like the Vanguard REIT (VNQ) which is based in USA.

So my question is if it makes a difference if I buy an ETF based in the USA like the VNQ or if I buy the Vanguard S&P 500 UCITS ETF (based in Ireland) as an example. There are quite some US ETF which are based in Ireland and Luxembourg, but not an attractive one for REITs like the VNQ.

Also: If I buy the S&P 500 UCITS ETF, don't I get US taxed regardless because the stocks are based in US? On Cornertrader the VNQ is available, but Im asking myself if there will be a tax issue or anything like that and if I should limit myself to only ETFs based in Switzerland, Luxembourg and Ireland (basically only ETFs which can be found on justetf.com) or if it really doesn't matter?
