Are Fiberglass cores, the heaviest legal cores we have in this game?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought pvc was heavier?

They're the heaviest good cores. If you're planning on making a training weapon, you'd probably want to do fiberglass just so that it lasts for a reasonable amount of time.

Wood is legal, but you have to pad it sufficiently. It's a case of diminishing returns and a narrow effective window.

You could get really thick pvc, but the amount of force the weapon will hit with will make it illegal.

Has anyone tried injecting that expanding foam insulation into pvc to strengthen it, especiall on longer swords or pole arms? I figure it wouldn't be much heavier.

The expanding foam (Great Stuff) doesn't do anything as far as stability goes. Once dry, it is brittle and weak. That, at least, is my understanding of it. I haven't tried it personally, but it has been thrown around these boards before.
