Is it true that, if Albert doesn't marry an aristocrat, his fortune gets split up upon his death? Whereas, if he marries and aristocratic woman (and has a son), that son will inherit the entire fortune?

You need to separate the private fortune from the House Laws. Private fortune follow general German inheritance rules and being aristocrat or not has no any relevance for law. When the fortune is set in a family foundation, this can be conditioned, for an example that the properties of the foundation are given at the disposal of the Chef of the House. When a reference is made to the House Laws, then indeed it can be of influence what these House Laws state. Usually these designate who is the Chef (the most senior male born from an union which meets the requirements).

According the expert Emil Abt, who wrote the book Mißheiraten in den deutschen Fürstenhäusern, unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der standesherrlichen Familien. (Heidelberg, 1911: Carl Winter's Universitätsbuchhandlung) the requirements for the House of Thurn und Taxis were (are) vested in the Family Treaty of 1831 and gives the following:
- a bride from the inland must have 16 noble ancestors
- a foreign bride must have the comital rank for at least 4 generations

I assume that with "inland" is meant: Bavaria. Okay, let us take a look at Gloria. Her family Schönburg-Glauchau belongs to the nobility of Saxony, so I assume the "foreign" rule is applicable (four generations of comital rank). No problem: the Schönburg-Glauchaus are gräflich since 1700. The other requirement: at least 16 noble ancestors was no problem too:

What kind of order (medal?) did Princess Gloria wear on a blue ribbon?

Pretty sure it's a Bavarian order due to the shield on it, maybe this one

Yes, it is her Bavarian order of merit. They usually wear the order of the country they are in if they have one. She has a German order of merit as well, but that us most certainly the Bavarian.

Thanks for information!
Bavarian Order of Merit on Princess Gloria is not surprising. The Thurn und Taxis family seat is in Regensburg, and Princess Gloria does her best in making Regensburg an attractive tourist destination.
