Seems to be more efficient, right?
You still need to "declare a string to use them", otherwise where would the result go?
Also, why do you talk about efficiency here? It's unrelated.

That might be true but it depends on what user needs. If natives I referred to work that way, you can still store or occasionally use them directly.

Totally correct.

PHP Code:
new num[6];
num_to_str(1numcharsmax(num));
menu_additem(menu"First"num);

menu_additem(menu"Second"num_to_str2(2));

Fair enough, I only took into account the example that Klippy provided.

You can find it in the attached archive. It's just a bare bones module used for the proof of concept. It's not meant to be used in production.
