  1. You compare a chipset with a socket, ok first of all AM4 and LGA1151(Z270 socket) are very different sockets thus making X370 chipset very different from z270 chipset, some things are comon for example data transmission to gpu and sata (hdd/ssd), the vrms and power regulations to cpu and ram, but the pathways and the ways they do this are different. On short: no it is not a copy, maybe just exterior look is similar but the internals are very different.

  2. I don't understand the question.

    As per the above response, these are two different types of SOCKETS. The AM4 socket only supports specific AMD Ryzen CPU's, and the LGA1151 socket only supports specific Intel CPU's as indicated by the CPU Support List for the EXACT model of motherboard.

    Your decision as to which one to invest in is primarily dictated by the CPU choice you want, including the ability to update to a better CPU in the future (such as buying an AM4 R5-1400 now then maybe get an 8-core ZEN2 CPU in two years for the same motherboard.

    There are pros and cons to both choices.

    For example, the upcoming COFFEE LAKE CPU's such as the i7-8700K (best gaming CPU when it comes out) are excellent Intel CPU's but it depends mainly on:
    a) budget, and
    b) purpose of computer (gaming? video editing?)

    The confusion comes from Asus because hero VI and mximus hero IX are identically in looks. But OP just in looks (exterior) inside are very different.
