Gota say they do look very similar, though they have some differences:

Red circles are missing entirely from the red ship, yellow circles are areas that are in the same spot but different in design, and green is nearly identical.

To me it looks like it almost may be a modular ship, where depending on the purpose various bits are plugged into a central engine and command block.

Smells like the teladi, universal parts and modular plug and play ships scream cost saving, and thus more profit :)

The big drives up top appear to be circular toward the rear of the structure, and pill-shaped toward the front... look closely at the forward structure of that drive on the red ship and it's juuuust visible ^^

As for those middle structures, looking closely at the trapezoidal structure on the red ship right in front of that tapering cylindrical side-mounted structure - I'm pretty sure that's the upper bit with the yellow lights on the blue ship. The picture of the red ship seems to indicate that the lower one (with the two bright blue lights on the blue ship) is placed much further forward, and the upper one (with the two smaller yellow lights) is placed one "module" behind it. That's supported by the upper structure's apparent absence on the right side in the image of the blue ship.

They both have Argon Federation insignias.

They're the same ship: the first screenshot is a view of the front, the second screenshot was taken from the rear.

Admitting you have a problem is the first step in figuring out how to make it worse.

It's pretty much the same ship. All the parts are there too that you circled.

What kind of AA options are available in the game? Judging by the screenshots its going to be a bit of a problem.

They most nearly Don't need to Apply AA by themselves as many Graphix cards (NVidia for what I know) do the AA almost fine or even better than game does...

Most of the screenshots have no AA. But some do. It's confusing, really.

I believe the red ship may be a pirate skin.

A large number of modules and turrets made L-ships in X Rebirth more interesting, detailed and technologically advanced in terms of graphics and gameplay. For me a downgrade of graphics for the sake of fps is undesirable thing.
too much busy on the screen obscures things. There's games where you can't see the ships when the guns open up. If you look at the X4 trailer there's plenty of bullets flying around, and the larger turrets are aesthetically pleasing on the Behemot/Colossus.

Irrational factors are clearly at work.

It shouldn't be that confusing actually, these screenshots are just in-game captures and not some kind of set-up material, so the aliasing level depends on the graphics settings used by the "player" while effectively playing. Some may do this in 1080, some may do in 4K, some others may play with varying levels of AA applied. In this specific case, I'd say that was just a normal 1080 capture without any kind of AA technique applied.

Looks like it. Or a remote shipyard of some sorts, possibly a pirate base/dock .

Not the PHQ I think, it doesn't have this "ring of scales" structure. Also the background doesn't match (see: https://youtu.be/N6s9sXjqCME?t=353) although possibly the PHQ doesn't always spawn in the same place?

Hard to say what is is though.

It was mentioned in one of the livestreams that one the missions is to find a suitable spot for the PHQ, kind of implies there are multiple ones? I would strongly expect to have a choice either way, especially when we can choose between different starts.

As far as X goes, "find" after X2 usually means "follow guidance to that one spot". Here's hoping they'd actually tone down the spoon-feeding.

I'm talking about how "find" missions worked in TC through XR, not whether or not you're free to place your PHQ.
