I am probably answering my own question already but, does the cassette body define the wheel as being campy or shimano? Or is it the internals of the actual hub? Could a campy hub be converted to shimano with just a shimano cassette body or does that not fly? THanks.

It is the freehub body (the part that the cassette goes on) that defines the the hub. Campy and Shimano have different cassettes that only fit on splines designed for them. There are others that make cassettes that work with Campy but fit on a Shimano compatable freehub body. If you have a more specific question... - TF

If there is an available cassette body to fit the other brand of cassette, then you can convert from one to the other.
