Why was my last stool white and looked like a fat worm?

Not sure.

Feces
Prompt medical evaluation is warranted for pattern of extremely light stools. There are a number of possible causes such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, or obstruction of a bile duct (i.e., gallstone or a mass). Any significant change in bowel habitus warrants assessment.

How to tell difference between mucus or fat or worms in poo stool?

By microscopy

Feces
If you bring a sample of the stool to your physician, he can send it off to the local microscopy lab where a trained technician can look for evidence of fat, or parasites, under the microscope. (Usually they look for evidence of worms like the eggs, not the worms themselves)

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Does floating stool caused by fat malabsorption have an obvious bad smell?

Yes

Feces
No mistaking it. The usual cause of a floating stool -- by far -- is gas bubbles. There's an individual who writes frequently with the obsessive fear of pancreatic cancer with basically no evidence. If you are suffering from obsessive thoughts that you have cancer, please get with someone who can help you manage these.

In a 16 mo old boy is 11% fecal fat considered normal? What about a stool pH of 8.5?

Stool is alkaline

Feces
The best way to evaluate stool fat is by collecting 24 hours stool. The normal is less than 7 grams. The stool is usually alkaline so pH of 8.5 is not worrisome.

Can GastroParesis cause severe constipation and many undigested food in stool including fat?

I am not sure

Constipation
Gastroparesis is what the name is saying namely the stomach does not empty and food stagnates there 4 hours. Usually it could be part of paresis of the entire GI tract and in this case constipation could be present. If there are difficulties in digesting too i think is possibly to have fat steatorrhea (fat in stool). As far as I know however fat in stool causes loose stools...see an GI guy!
