You can't compare PHP (A Programming Language) with Asp.net (A Framework).

PHP vs C#
The winner is C#. Because
C# is a programming language while PHP is a scripting language.
C# is compiled to .net bytecodes. PHP is interpreted.
But PHP is easier to learn and you can code without dealing with strict types and you don't even have to learn OOP.

Laravel VS Asp.net MVC
Both are very similar and I think none of them wins. You could google for the details although.

MySql vs SQLServer
MySql is well-matched with PHP and is faster and easy to learn.
MSSQL has more features but I struggled to learn it.

Windows vs Linux
I leave this one to you.

Just a piece of advice:
Maybe this advice is not fit for you but I give it a shot.
Just pick one of them and ignore the other one for the rest of your life or you will find your self in a situation that you're grown up and your pockets are empty.

PHP has a strong market. As versatility goes, though, .NET languages are well-suited to a greater variety of tasks, and are also extremely in-demand.

Both are used a lot, and in both you'll find a decent job.
PHP is used more in smaller companies or webagencies (who make websites/webapps for the big companies in PHP) while C# is used more in the bigger firms.

I prefer PHP, and especially the frameworks like Laravel.

Out of interest, why isn't Javascript in the running? It's pretty much the king of versatility and I imagine it will only grow in popularity/demand.

I work remotely so technically the world is my job market, but in my geographical area the vast majority of jobs are either PHP or Node. In general I've noticed an increased demand for Node - especially serverless/cloud-based (e.g. Lambda and such).

Maybe focus on or specialize in one language to begin with, but this sort of rigidity is often a death sentence in tech/programming. I've also personally built my career on being able to jump between languages/platforms/paradigms/etc at the drop of a hat.

Another honorary mention here has to be Go; there's not a whole lot of jobs out there yet, but I can imagine a future where it's a lot more common. (In other words, don't necessarily learn this as your first language, but perhaps keep an eye on it for the future.)

If you work freelance you probably will need to make some designs yourself in the beginning. If you work in a company/webagency you won't make designs as a front-end developer. The designers will make the design and pass it to you using Figma, Sketch, a PDF-file,... and it's your task to develop it in HTML.

As noted above, this tends to depend on geographical location. Perhaps there maybe global statistics that will give you worldwide totals, but are you really in a position to go to where the demand actually is at, or be able to make contact and with the demand area and convince them to let you work remotely?
