Re: Proto matter and red matter ??

Other than the word "matter" in the name, they're nothing alike. Trek's also dabbled with Dark Matter (a real... well, hypothetical real thing) in Voyager.

According to the novelverse (DTI: Watching the Clock), Red Matter was discovered in 2383, and at that time had only been synthesized in microscopic quantities. And they didn't actually know how a runaway chain reaction of any significant quantity would would end.
