I have a Samsung ddr400 512 mb memory stick and i plan to combine it with a markvision 512mb dd400 to enable dual channel, is it ok if they are different brand?

If they are the same speed there should be no issues.

It's usually best to use one brand, and the one with inferior potential latencies will reduce the potential latencies the other could reach or will default as, but it should work without problem.

Do latencies vary from brand to brand even if they are same speed (apparently)?

Yes. Even form the same brand latencies can be different (depending on the quality of the RAM).
