How to choice hFE of ballast transistor?

We are using S912ZVCA for my project.

BCP53-10 hfe=63~160

BCP53-16 hfe=100~250

BTP2907SL3 hfe=180~390

Can we have the BTP2907SL3 instead of the BCP53 for ballast transistor?

You must avoid using a darlington transistor or transistors with high hFE.

What is the normal renge of the hFE?
