  Now, I will admit that I only skimmed through this license, but what I want to know is this:

Is the gist of the license that I have to release everything required to have Crystal Space run correctly after I modify it, but not things that use Crystal Space which Crystal Space can run independently of ?

Say I modify the Crystal Space source by adding this line:

#include <mylib.h>;

This would require me to release mylib.h in addition to Crystal Space files because now my modification of Crystal Space won't run properly without it, correct?

However, if in mygame.cpp I add this line

#include <crystalspace.h>; //(I don't know the actual name of the file, just assume this is a Crystal Space file.)

I would not have to release mygame.cpp because Crystal Space doesn't require mygame.cpp to run correctly, it's just that mygame.cpp needs Crystal Space to run correctly. Am I correct?

Yes, that is basically correct.
