OK, dude:

The 5/4 'march' section from your namesake or the 9/8 bridge from In My Time Of Dying... and why?

ok, I think I catch your drift.  I haven't listened to these two songs since forever, but I'd probably have to go with the former.  Achilles is one of my favorite Zep songs (along with Stairway, Battle of Evermore, No Quarter, Kashmir) and I've never liked In My Time of Dying.

I'm talking about the part of ALS starting at 4:50 in (5/4 time, meaning five beats per measure)

vs. the part of IMTOD starting at 3:45 (3:27 in the video below) with three normal 4/4 measures followed by a 9/8 measure (4.5 beats).

The rest of the song is kinda slow.
