So if a case is a federal case, do the state PI laws such as Texas apply since it is not under state jurisdiction?

I am wondering about that.

I don't know for certain, but my understanding is that your investigative activities in the state are still governed by state law regardless of the jurisdiction of the case.

I'm am not an attorney, but unless you are working as an agent for the government (Fed), you fall under the jurisdiction from where you are located. Most laws are duplicitous in respect to state and federal.
