Well, I have the panasonic hcv-700, and use 60P all the time. The 60P/28Mbps option is AVCHD, and works great with fcpx, as long as one checks off use optimized media when one imports. If you have a slower intel computer you can also import using proxy media, and deselect that option when exporting.

Which is the "better" format for FCPX AVCHD or 1080/60P? Another problem is when I put the card in my friends PC it is not readable. I believe it's a software issue but not sure.

Better is relative. Again, to record in 60P is to record in AVCHD on your camcorder. There are other ways to record at lower bit rates and with interlaced, 60i, recording.
My suggestion is to consider several things.
One, review the specs of the camcorder, if you haven't.
Then, simply record short clips at different rates and formats, and take a look at how fcpx works for them. A slower computer might balk at using 60P, though importing with proxy media should work. For many people, there is no need to record in 60P, with its huge files. But my experience is that 60P recording does like nice on YouTube.
The card should be readable in fcpx, if you use the import function and don't try to just drag parts of the card into fcpx.
No idea what kind of pc your friend is using. If by some chance it is a windows machine...I think my lucky stars I no longer know how that world works. Apple's iMovie won't recognize video shot at 60P.

… a Panasonic HC-V500 and I want to film in ACVHD or 1080/60P … Any suggestions?
it is in any resolution AVCHD.
these settings are no antagonism.
