I have heard native speakers use the word hombracho to describe a big, strong well-built man. On here it says hombracho means a short, squat and square man. Can anyone tell me which definition is correct'

I think the idea is just that the person is thickset. Which means stoutly built. Not willowy or lanky. The two definitions above are not contradictory.

My reference book says it is someone you do not want to mess about with. "hulking great brute" or a "big tough fellow"
