What is it called when acids and bases cancel out each other's chemical action in a reaction?

When an acid and a base reacts chemically, their pH "resets", resulting in a product of a salt and water. The water, with a PH of 7, indicates the change in pH of both compounds.

This reaction is called a neutralization reaction, and is a double displacement reaction.

Hope this helps :)
