Can You Prove Two Particles Are Identical?

I am no physicist, but doesn't energy come in discrete and indivisible packets called quanta? This is the reason for the election rings/levels I see in diagrams of atoms. Would this not be the threshold for an exact measurement? Even if it was found that particles differ, would this difference would apply to quanta? Would quanta be indistinct from other quanta, identical even?

To tell you the truth, I find the idea of infinity divisible universe a bit maddening, anti-intuitive. But, I know that means nothing, when it comes to the truth of things. So I ask, in earnest. Am I way off base here?
