"1. What is the big advantage in using fuzzy logic to build a
controller, ..."

Keep in mind that fuzzy logic is not one technique: there are
fuzzy regressions, fuzzy clustering systems and so on. My
understanding is that fuzzy controllers are usually fuzzy rule
sets arranged in a matrix- really a look-up table with
interpolation. The advantage usually touted for fuzzy rule
systems is that they are easier to construct and easier to
understand. I suspect that this is more true for fuzzy rule
bases not confined to the giant matrix format.

"...and
2. what fuzzy logic controlers can do that a Neural Net can't?"

Assuming a sufficiently broad selection of each, theoretically
nothing.
