[Q] Question on firmware differences

I searched but really didn't find anything.

After looking at the list samfirmware.com has, I started to wonder what the exact differences are. They, for example, list 4 or 5 different European Froyo roms.. so what are the exact differences?

Also, I noticed the Euro's use the XX modem even if the PDA is a XW or XX. Is the radio chipset in the i9000's software controlled? If so, does anyone have a list of what modem firmware goes with what frequencies/specs? Such as XX modem supports these speeds and frequencies: BAND1, BAND2, etc

The other question, and this is just sheer curiosity, my wife's Fascinate (CDMA) obviously has a completely different baseband ROM etc. Could you in theory use say the PDA part of a 2.2 Euro ROM (GSM phone) and use the existing MODEM firmware off the CDMA phone if you found a way to pull the firmware off? How does the mixing and matching work?
