I know this is weird to ask and such a late question to ask but

Once the Knightfall protocol is activated Batman/Gordon fake their death and then we see that Batman-like figure saving that couple in the alleyway, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?

Is that a specific version of Batman that's appeared in a comic story? I'm not fully familiar with all of them. Any theories? Or what are we suppose to believe? Like are we suppose to believe Alfred and Bruce officially just disappeared all together and that's someone "new" or what?

There are quite a bit of theories going around.

The main theory is that Batman is now full time Batman given that Bruce Wayne was "killed off". Also that he is using Scarecrow's fear gas for his own war on crime. He may not be "Batman" anymore, yet he has taken it to the next level, probably with a new persona.

Other theories are that someone else has taken on the fight now that Batman was forced to retire. Azrael, Nightwing, hell maybe even Damian if the rumored Damian game by WB Montreal has any validity.

At the end of the day it is left to be vague so that the player can come up with their own theory about it.
If you want something done right, do it yourself.
So note to self: Do more myself.

Was Damian in Arkham Knight? I can't remember. I played this game like when it first came out and for some reason it's been on my mind recently because I've been watching Gotham so Batman has been on my mind..

I still want to by the remastered games that came out for the PS4 but I haven't had time. Want to replay those.

No, Damian has not appeared in the Arkham games at all.

But allegedly WB Montreal has been rumored to be working on a Damian Batman game. Just rumors at the point, however.

A thought I had about the "Batman is now full time Batman" theory is that he could be using the Mad Hatter's tech instead of fear toxin; people would eventually start detecting traces of that stuff

Its confirmed to be Damien Wayne
Bart-Mangled Banner is the greatest Simpsons episode. It is great for the exact same reason american audiences hate it: because it captures them so accurately.

Either Bruce or Azrael using fear gas I would assume. Made for one hell of an ending (pun unintended).

I don't personally see this as all that up in the air. I thought it was fairly obvious from very early in the game that Batman was going to start using Scarecrow's toxin to terrorize baddies.

Batman got the sample of Scarecrow's toxin right at the beginning of the game, and then Scarecrow spent the rest of the game lecturing him about how he wasn't using fear properly. Batman started grumbling about how he was going to have to change his tactics and give the criminals something more than him to fear about halfway through the game.

I fully anticipated this well before I saw the end of the game.

Sure, technically it's left to the individual to decipher, but I don't think that was the intention. It's only left to the individual to decipher because it works better cinematically if they don't have to completely hold your hand and give you a printed letter spelling out the plan in excruciating detail. I don't think it's that they were trying to leave it up to your imagination - just that they were trying to present it in a cinematic way. I think the intention was pretty obviously to show that Batman faked his death to avoid legal problems and retribution against his loved ones, and attacks on Bruce Wayne personally, and then used Scarecrow's fear toxin to convince all the baddies that he was the ghost of Batman - to scare them even worse, while sidestepping all the problems that crop up with people knowing his identity.
I am a cantankerous old goat. But I'm very helpful to people who stay on my good side.
It's best to stay on my good side.
