I am thinking of trying Aloe Vera gel over my BP layer. Can I use BP then wait for it to try then apply the Aloe Vera? How about applying it over Clindamycin Phosphate?

I don't quite use your exact products; I use Duac, which is 5% BP and 1% clindamycin.

I've applied both regular aloe vera gel and aloe vera gel mixed with some jojoba oil over Duac before. It didn't mess with the efficacy, but the irritation did increase for a few minutes after I applied the aloe. From what I've been reading, the aloe can pull the topical deeper into your skin, so I could see how that'd burn a bit with a strong product.

I waited 15 minutes in-between.

Okay, does it matter if it is ALCOHOL FREE?

I think that has alcohol

This doesn't

Does the Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera GEL have alcohol?

I use CVS's generic version of Fruit of the Earth. It explicitly states that it doesn't contain alcohol on the packaging. I would stay away, away, away from putting alcohol on your face.

Check the bottle. Make sure it's there. If you can't find anything, maybe check out the ingredients, too.

Edit:

Oh, I completely forgot the look at your links.

Yeah, #1 = bad. Alcohol + coloring + fragrance.

#2 = good. No alcohol. No fragrance. No coloring. It doesn't say 100% aloe vera gel like mine, but it has the exact same ingredients. That looks like Walgreen's generic version of FOTE.
