Are certain acting styles more suitable for certain roles?

Of course. Different acting styles influences an actor’s choices for a role.
Understand that acting is not an individual pursuit - it involves a whole team of people and an audience which influence an actor’s choices. Different choices are based on the script, medium, director, cast mates, producer/project goals and the like. Each project is unique.
That’s why actors study a variety of techniques - it’s like building a tool chest so an actor can pick the right tool for the role. It would be a mistake For an actor to over simplify their acting choices. For example, an actor shouldn’t say to themselves “it’s a hero in a drama so it means I have to apply the Stanislavski style of acting”. An actor needs flexibility and versatility to make adjustments for each project.

Do you really have to ask that question?

But a good, well-trained, experienced actor should be able to adapt to most types of role.

Of course but I guess if you're a good actor, you'd adapt to any role.
