I see it being called an opel and a vauxhall omega. Is it the same company? Whats the story there? I googled both names and the cars look the same to me.

Its like the Sierra to the Silverado - different name, same platform

Same car built on the V Platform, however the Catera is more like a Omega MV6, as the Vauxhall Omega is a RHD car.

Yep you can order parts from either car as long as you dont mix up the RHD parts wtih the LHD, look on rockauto for many of these parts...
