Diplomacy is an utility skill which gives the player character access to additional dialogue options to get better deals, get information for free or a better price, avoid combat and many other things, like the Leadership skill. But compared to it, diplomacy only gives extra dialogue options, while leadership also gives some skills which can be utilised during combat and passive bonuses to physical and mental resistances. But Diplomacy offers way more extra dialogue in comparison. The skill is useless for companions, since only the player character can use it in dialogue.
