Speaking not as Staff, but as the guy that made the changes discussed here:
Dark Chips are classified as either 'Standard' or 'Mega', so they follow the same guidelines as those. (The Dark Chips that reflect Skill Effects are specifically categorized as 'Mega' in their text, just below the Chip's Name).
Advanced Dark Chips follow the guidelines of 'Giga' Chips.
Things that add specific number of Dark Chip Uses (IE: Regal Format) can essentially be read as: "+X Chip uses, but those uses can only be spent on a Dark Chip".
((IE: You have "+2 Dark Chip Uses per Battle". In addition to your 5 Standard Chips or 3 Mega Chips, you can use two additional Dark Chips beyond that limit))
