Whats The Anti-matter?

I`m wondering how this works... or if anyone has figured it out yet.

I`ve read about the odd interaction between the event horizon, and spontaneous creation of matter. The way I understand it is (correct me if I`m wrong) if matter and its anti-matter get created on opposite sides of the event horizon, rather than colliding and annihilating each other, one will escape while the other is pulled into the singularity. What I`m wondering is... exaclty what particles are getting spontaneously created? (protons? electrons? or what?) AND, what process (if one is needed) allows this particle to become stable. Also, I assume that this violates the conservation of energy law, right? What happens to the other anti version of the matter that didn`t escape? Can it undergo some reaction in the black hole (huge temp and pressure) to somehow rearrange its quarks and become stable matter as well?

Next, wouldn`t this mean that black holes are creating matter? Is this related to the gamma and x-ray bursts?

Also, if you think along those lines and try to figure out how the conservation of energy law still applies... can energy have a real and an imaginary component? If it does, then is this law looking at the magnitude of the energy? If thats the case, then maybe the matter/energy isn`t being spontaneously created... maybe its just shifting from a purely imaginary value to a purely real value.

Finally, am I just spewing nonsense? Need more input!
