According to my understanding Photopost and vbgallery licenses have merged, correct? And by purchasing Photopost pro, I will have the option of switching between the two when I install it along side my vbulletin? Please help clear this up as I'm starting to get a little bit frustrated with this. Thanks.

By purchasing a 'merged license' you can have a public installation of either PhotoPost Pro or vBGallery but not both at the same time. For testing (eg: seeing which one suits your needs the best) you can install both products on your server as long as it's a private install not available to the public.

After your purchase has been processed then in the members download area you'll see links for downloading both products.

Ahh, thank you for clearing that up for me :) Which one would you recommend that I install on my live server; Vbgallery or photopost? I'm running vbadvanced 1.0.1 currently...I guess it would be easier to upgrade to vbgallery, but will I be loosing out all the bells and whistles that photopost offers? Will photopost "inherit" my vbulletin themes?

Hello

It is really up to you which one you want to use. Here is a thread which would explain the feature differences.

Yes Photopost Pro uses the vb style.
