Can I use these interchangeably? The best defence is offence. Offence is the best deffence. The best defence is attack. Attack is the best deffence.

While they all mean the same thing, the word offence is always used in this expression, it's a standard collocation. So if you want to sound natural, you could use either of the first two.

The only difference is in the subject of the sentences (attack or defence) and therefore the implied emphasis.

Yes, they're all interchangeable. For spelling, it's 'defence' (not 'deffence')
