When I connect my VPN, the External IP Address will change (sometimes?), so is there a way to show both your "true" IP Address AND the VPN IP Address?

I'm not sure what you mean by "true".  The external IP address is polled by pinging our server, and that ping will provide the IP address of your computer.  That is the true external IP address of your system.

Nope, the true external IP address is the one I was given by my ISP. The one I was given by my VPN provider is a fake IP address. And I would like to be able to see both of them, which means you have to poll my gateway AND your server. Shouldn't be too difficult?

I'm not sure how to talk to our server via both path (VPN and non-VPN).  The external IP address as provided by AIDA64 is basically the same as if you manually visited one of the IP address providing sites, e.g. https://whatsmyip.com/
