Other than the fact that LoL was first in time and Dota2 is entirely free (right?), what is the difference between the two? Any big design or mechanical stuff?
I think this is a good summary, for the most part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2qjrKRH2Q8 (15mins). A lot easier to watch a video than to read a wall of text. It's an older video, the UI has changed, but the basics of the gameplay are still the same.
I'm half joking but I used to do that build sometimes when I played random and would get tilted at rolling another TvT. No gas, no addons, just pump out marines and hit around 42 supply with all your SCVs. Hide the build as much as possible (put raxes at the edges of your base so they don't get scanned, don't show more than 4 marines at the front of your natural ramp).
Didn't watch the replay but when I used to cheese TvTs I would proxy 2 rax + build 1 in base (faking 1 rax expo) and then attack when I had about 7-8 marines (3rd rax would probably be under construction iirc). Pull all but 2-3 scvs and use MULEs to keep the marine rally coming. The longer you wait, the more likely it is they can defend (bunker mass repair = lose, reactored hellions behind wall = lose, react quickly and group their 3-4 marines with scvs = lose).
Also you want to make sure to send a marine + scv to clear watchtowers so they don't see your huge marine army walking across the map.

Reason: didn't test timings or anything just kinda went with the flow
I watched Gumiho stream earlier and he was going gas first cloaked banshee/reactor hellion every TvT. I have no experience with gas first builds but I'll try it out before I resort to marine/scv all ins.
If any diamondish Terrans want to practice, let me know.
not that hot tho, but is probably plat/diamond from my 5 mins of watching her stream (she had decent probe saturation and didn't get supply blocked but had 2 robos on 2 base and was floating ~500/500 and forgot to build probes frequently)
