I have a POD HD 500X. Is it possible to split my guitar signal with one being slightly delayed (~10ms), thus making it sound like two guitars?

Between the amp and the mixer there is a top line and a bottom line (A and . Insert a digital delay onto the top line (A) with a delay set to minimum. 20ms.
I set mine up as Time 20ms / FB 1% / Bass / Treble / Mix all at the 12 o'clock position.(all 50%).

Try a chorus in only one of the paths. Part of a chorus' effect is a slight delay. Make the mix 100%. Adjust the other chorus parameters to taste (start by listening to only the chorus' path). Use the A/B volume and pan for your mix. Start with a full left & right pan (I know, I know, it's not technically a pan). You'll probably want to change it but start there for now. At the very least you have a cool stereo chorus. At least I think so. I find I like most of the choruses better in this configuration. Try this with all the other effects as well. Effect in one path with mix at 100%. Start to adjust the effects parameters by listening to the effect path only. Use A/B volume and pan for mix. After adjusting the A/B volume and pan, then try backing off on the effect's own mix parameter. This is an FX technique I haven't seen posted and have been meaning to do so for awhile. Please don't ask me about what the difference is between using a mono and or stereo effect. Just try it. It's way easier to hear than to explain..

I do this exact thing for live use. Really makes for a big sound. It helps when recording too but multiple takes is still better.
After the amp block you'll have Left and Right signal paths. Place a Delay at 20ms on one of them with mix set on 100% and of course make sure to pan the mixer for full Left and Right too.
Here's an example:
