Should I read a bunch of more modern stuff before jumping into Gibbon's Decline and fall? Should I read it at all? Regardless, are there any other works regarding the fall of Rome that are required reading?

Most modern works are influenced by the decline and fall, so you don't need to. However, it is important to remember that Rome never really "fell", it just sort of faded away sometime in the early middle ages.

rome in its prime was fucking glorious, even the expansion i.e. wars on foreign territory's are fucking awesome. the Punic wars are my favorite

It fell when it lost control of the city called Rome.

The decline of the roman empire started when it became a roman empire.

The empire wasn't so centralized that the loss of even the capital destroyed it. When you're province is weeks of travel from the capital you get to be pretty self-sufficient.

I'm currently reading "The Inheritance of Rome". It"s very well written

Not at all, it fell only in 1453
