I got the olympic shoes, starting sitting down, and now depth isn't an issue at all.

As for forward leaning, bar placement does play a huge role. I still squat with a relatively low bar (more "medium" not anything) and have a slight lean. You'll notice the guy in the video does have a lean. In my opinion, forward leans to that extent are fine in PL. However, high bar is great, has better carry over to olympic lifting, and in my opinion just looks better. Glad I could help a bit.

Another bit I might add for bringing your squat up. If you're going to switch to this style, focus on your front squat a little bit as well. What is your front squat number compared to back squat?
To be honest I have not front squatted in a while. Never maxed it either, but I would guess it is in the range of 60-65%.
