Is there any truth to the rumor that the PDX10 and Panasonic GS400 use the same CCDs?

The GS400 also has 1/4.7" megapixel CCDs that allow for hi-res 16:9 via 4:3 shaped chips. Are these two cams using the same chips? And if so, would that mean that you could match footage between these cams?

You'd be hard pressed to find a difference.

I would take a shot at saying that Sony and Matsushita are knuckle-2-knuckle in the ring and there'd be no way that they'd share the same chip supplier. They both buy in different lenses (Leica and Zeiss) and these have different multi-coatings that influence the final colours to some degree.

Matching footage between cameras is probably easier in post these days - double click white balance filters mean you can tell the computer what should be white in both shots, and the pc will do the matching for you.

Really? What programs? Particulary, what programs can I use on my PC laptop?

I have this facility on my Canopus Storm 2 capture card, and I assume others have the same facility as well. It's a life saver for any wedding videographer, as 99% of brides wear white, and with key-frameable white balance I can track her as she walks room to room and even outside.
