This is what I'd like to achieve. I built a second room to do PC gaming in, but as I said before -- I'm cloning my main monitor(which is a true 120hz input monitor) so I'm actually passing the 120 frames to the TV and it results in bad tearing.
So far my only fix would be to change from 60hz to 120hz when I go between rooms. Or just deal with the tearing. But I hate tearing.
I'm sure it would look great at 60hz too, but I wish I had known that I wouldn't get true 120hz out of my TV when I bought it. But again, looks like no TVs are accepting 120hz in at this time.

Technically I could do this, but at 60hz you mean, right? But I want to 'clone' my main monitor onto this Panasonic TV, and whether I'm using VGA or HDMI wouldn't really matter, right?

The only real issue with using VGA is most digital displays will disable some, most or all of your image calibration options.
The other thing to keep in mind is when using VGA you'll want to make sure your tracking/phase is optimized since not all digital displays get this right automatically.
Would VGA actually give me a benefit here over HDMI? Doesn't sound like it would be much different, unless I used it as a dedicated input for my PC?

Not sure what this is referring to. I have sent 120hz to my TV over HDMI and notice bad tearing. Tonight I am going to put my computer to 60hz and test to make sure the tearing is gone.
Additionally, I'll enable the smooth motion to see how the "fake" 120hz looks on my TV. Unfortunately that would require me to disable Game Mode though, so gaming would be impossible due to input lag. But it would be interesting to see for a test how much different "fake" 120hz is versus true 120hz.
