I thought Ventus was Roxas, until he said his name was Ventus LOL

The Destiny Island opening scene does make the confusion somewhat easy.
I literally just started BBS for the first time and while at first, I thought it was Roxas when I saw him wield his keyblade and that the other characters also had them, that's when I knew this was something different. Roxas wields his keyblade somewhat like Sora. Ventus' style was very different.
The type of keyblade, the absence of the kingdom key also tipped me off.
It was back in the Ventus tutorial scene when I explored the start menu that I first saw the name Ventus.
I did however, notice a Sora mannerism in Ventus, in the cut scene after the sparring, the way he folds his hands behind his head.
I'll admit I still haven't figured out what type of storylines these are, my guess is past keyblade wielders, pre-Sora.
Is there any connection between Ventus and Roxas at all since they are identical or is that just a total coincidence?
Yea, Ventus' constant backhand style is (so far) unique among the Keyblade Wielders.
BBS takes place ten years before the First Kingdom Hearts, the first parts of the prologue (on Destiny Islands) even 14 years before (Sora is 14 in KH 1, so that can already give a hint).
I won't spoil the rest of BBS for you but I'll say that the connection between Sora, Roxas and Ventus will eventually made clear over the course of the game if you can put together the puzzle pieces correctly.
Since you've already played the prologue though you've seen the scene on Ventus' broken awakening platform where a "brand-new" heart contacts Ventus and offers to stabilize his badly damaged heart, that scene is very important and should be kept in mind as it later helps understanding parts of the scenes after the finale.
