In Mexico, "tabique" and "ladrillo" are often synonyms.

Not in Chile. Tabique is a thin wall.

In Spain tabique is a wall. I would say a wall that separates two rooms in a house, but maybe I'm making it up.

So what in your opinion would be the difference between 'tabique' and 'pared' ?
Tabique is used for smaller walls, less high or separating walls within a structure, and 'pared' for larger, thicker (outer) walls that actually support a structure?

No, you are correct. And usually this wall is thinner than the rest of the walls.

Not necessarily.

In Chile we don't use the word tabique as much as pared (interior vs exterior).
