is this somehow hinted at or represented in the mod?

Yes. In the buildings you have access to as well as the text of certain events.

To put it in VTMB1 terms, LaCroix is the Princes of Los Angeles Vampires, he is not the Mayor of Los Angeles Mortals.

Was curious about this, one of the buildings is called 'direct rule' are there any events attached to breaching the masquerade through this? I know theres no end date so its kinda unfair but late game other vampires/rulers are just loaded with money to where a duke can counter an emperor in mercs its pretty funny to watch but not when your on the receiving end since its like a zerg rush with the only counter being to outbuy mercs and cheese the ai into attacking while your defending

We haven't done much to do more balancing yet on levies vs. men at arms vs. knights vs. mercs. We should probably reduce the amount of mercs available. Its a work in progress. We have a whole lot more events coming for having exposed the Masquerade.

Is there a reason btw why sometimes it works for my cappadocian to summon zombu and sometimes it doesn't even show up in my 'summon army' options?

I think this might have to do with a cooldown and whether or not you can afford it.

Cooldown is probably not the reason here, because with this character I was never able to use zombu.
My last character was Dionysios of Athens and he was able to summon zombu. Now I'm playing Angelique of Answan (vassal of Nakhthorheb) and she doesn't seem to be able to raise zombu although she possesses Advanced Oblivion.
And ressources being the Problem seems unlikely, because I've got plenty of ressources left as far as I can see.

Any other possibilities?

Furthermore: Is the marriage system working as intended? It is pretty difficult to marry off vampires. And I'm not sure if that's intended.

I think there was an issue with zombu spawning that has been fixed in the dev build.

Marriages are working as intended, but you need to desactivate the "fertility" filter that is automatically on to see eligible vampires. We can't mod it to be automatically off.

So, something I've noticed is that a number of the game-start vampires have only martial-prowess educations. This is a big hinderance to them if you decide to play one of them, since that means that they get no lifestyle XP bonus for any lifestyle tree (or if you enable the setting to let AI rulers advance lifestyles, though I think that's broken in my games at least - I end up jumping around and doling out lifestyle XP to important rulers periodically.)

I believe the base game only gives martial-prowess educations once knighthood is unlocked for a culture, and then only in conjunction with a base martial education. Perhaps the game start prowess-educated vampires could be given a low-tier martial education in addition, or perhaps substitute out hunter, strong, or blademaster traits if you want to ensure they get prowess bonuses (or just bump their base prowess scores)?

Lifestyles advancement for AI characters is mostly fixed in the next update.

Interesting thought about martial prowess. To be honest, I'm liking that martial and prowess are strictly divided in the mod. You can be a great commander and a weak fighter (Alfred the Great comes to mind) or the reverse. It's even more true in vampire lore, since most vampires aren't great strategists or anything (they don't have big battles most of the time) but there are plenty of skilled fighters in their ranks.

The easiest solution would be to have prowess education gives a bonus to a lifestyle branch, maybe choleric.

Is this useful at all? I get plenty of choleric resonance experience from feeding on kine (and the occasional kindred). Meanwhile, the vanilla lifestyle trees have many useful perks but slow progress.

Choleric was just a wild guess. I could also see prowess education giving a bonus to martial lifestyles (which has a "fighter" branch after all). As long as martial and prowess (as stats, and educations) are still separate, I'm perfectly fine with linking prowess education to one of the lifestyles.

How can I revoke or plot to revoke a vassal county?
First you need to change their feudal contract to allow revocation by changing domain from "protected" to "lieges will", (I like to do it by increasing their rights in some other area that I'm OK with), then you can do it the same way as in the base game. If you, or any prior liege, have already changed a vassals contract once you'll have to kill/banish them somehow since a characters contract can only be changed once.
Note that since it's impossible to modify a barons contract and the default contract forbids revocation you can never revoke a barony once granted.

First you need to change their feudal contract to allow revocation by changing domain from "protected" to "lieges will", (I like to do it by increasing their rights in some other area that I'm OK with), then you can do it the same way as in the base game. If you, or any prior liege, have already changed a vassals contract once you'll have to kill/banish them somehow since a characters contract can only be changed once.
Note that since it's impossible to modify a barons contract and the default contract forbids revocation you can never revoke a barony once granted.

I see. When I tried changing a vassal contract, I could only see the Vampire Laws options. I will take a look again. Thanks!
