Do they mean the same thing?
The country had a large territory ...
A. ... stretching to the mountains.
B. ... that stretched to the mountains.
I'll miss the forum too. It's thanks to you what I write doesn't look as much like gibberish as it did before.

they mean the same. You would need a comma after territory and before stretching in choice A. It is a descriptive aside. The option is a descriptive secondary clause (that stretches...). Both are used to describe the territory and refer to the very same aspect of the territory.
