However, it does not specify there to be a difference between PPL and SP. I know that there is a difference so when it says 1 MI I know it is actually 3 MI for the SP. If someone knows the section that pertains directly to SP and spells it out in the FARs please list the link or FAR number.
Basically, 14 CFR 61.315 trumps any other regulation (including 91.155). So, even though 91.155 says "one mile", 61.315 (sport pilot privileges) says "3 miles".
There is nothing in 315 that changes the "clear of clouds" requirements, so 91.155 cloud clearance requirements apply to Sport Pilots, too.
This is no different than Part 91 telling you how you can fly at night, if your plane is appropriately equipped, but 61.315 says "no night flying" for Sport Pilots.
Part 91 privileges apply, unless they are trumped by 61.315
