    This is probably a stupid question, but I want to make sure. As asked in the title, is the firmware version of both consoles the same?

    Yes. I don't need to elaborate more on it, however :

    The XL just "stretches" the aspect ratio using hardware.

    No, the 3DS XL has the same resolution, no aspect ratio or stretching is done. It just has bigger pixels.
