how do we perform a glissando if we're doing it from a higher register to a lower register?

You can use your fingers or your thumb depending upon context. If you look closely in the video this is mentioned.

Do you have any techniques for playing the piano at fast tempos? Generally, playing pieces that have many 8th, 16th or even smaller note values in them, that are played quickly.

Excellent! No one every teaches it like that. I learned by trial and error.
