Along these lines, a correlated random effects (CRE) model specifies a (linear) relationship between the random effects and the Xs. The citations below discuss these models in more detail. This type of model can be estimated in stata using sureg on panel data in wide form (separate Ys and Xs for each panel dimension) with proper constraints. However, a completely unrestricted CRE model cannot be estimated using this approach because some of the constraints are non-linear (which stata doesn't allow). These models can also be estimates using a minimum distance approach which I think would be do-able in stata.
