I heard they were a direct copy of of the 351 Cleveland. But that the Yates heads were a secret copy of the Buick StageII head. Am I wrong?

That is wrong, a lot of people think similar looking engines are copies.
All of the OEMs had similar engine prototypes of all configurations in R&D going back to the 50's.

The main difference between the LS and other V-8's before it was the massive investment in computer simulation and optimization.
It was equal to millions of man hours from the 60's.

The R&D in a modern engine like an LS is nothing like the engines from the 60's.
There is probably more R&D in just one manifold than all muscle car engines of the 60's combined.
