If it’s from the same number yes

That doesn’t mean that they will, but it is a risk

If you are calling from Skype you will be given a number by Skype

Calling skype will result in PayPal knowing you are using Skype to make the calls to them.

I personally think it's better to use either a dedicated VoIP service, or even Google Voice # instead of Skype which is more obvious.

An even better method is to use a CallerID spoofing service that supports calls to toll-free numbers.

It’s also my understanding that caller ID hiding will not work in the US when calling a toll free number. Apparently the number is always shared when your phoning someone toll free. That isn’t an option either

This is 100% correct.

The US phone system uses two different technologies for number identifcation.

The first of which is just regular CID which cannot be blocked when calling toll-free numbers.

The second, is called ANI (Automatic Number Identification) which is used exclusively when dialing toll-free exchanges such as 800, 877, 866, etc.
This cannot be blocked by you and is used for billing purposes. The called party usually pays for the call, thus gets to see the numbers calling them.

Calls using ANI can't be blocked, but they can be spoofed using some types of services.

You can bet that PayPal not only knows the phone # calling them, but what TYPE of number it is (mobile, landline, voip, etc) along with the name (CNAM) for the calling party. This is easily obtained using online databases, many of which are publically available.

the best thing you can do is use the number that's in your account.
I wouldn't do it any other way

This might be your own experience that has worked for now but not the general safe recommendation.
