    not sure about question 2.
    ps1 and psx are the same thing unless they refer to the remodeled ps1 as psx, anyway they are functionally the same.
    ps1 games are cd-rom based. the ps1 cannot read dvd format. it would be like putting a dvd movie in your cd player. or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in your vcr. Early PS2 games were also cd-roms. games like crazy taxi or midnight club.

    well the white small ps1 is newer version of the gray big psx... the bios versions are diffrent while the gray has the 1xxx... the white have the 9xxx... the board of the ps1 is diffrent in some ways and the ps1 is somehow faster then the gray one... it's also cheaper then the gray and has a diff type of chip to fit inside it...

    no you dont need patches you can swap the games and it's all good

    i wish there were games on dvd's for ps1 or gray psx... but sadly no... the gray and the white dont read dvd's... since they cant read the dvd's the laser wont let you... and the board dont have the dvd player in the bios fuctions...

    thats about it
