comment How to attach the language in question to the word “Muttersprachler”?
Well, sometimes the best answer to a "how do I ..." question is "You don't.", of course along with a better alternative.

comment The plural of “Alter”?
A word of warning for non-native speakers: Never use "Alter" as salutation! Its meaning is just like 'ey, buddy...'

comment How to attach the language in question to the word “Muttersprachler”?
I did not down-vote, but I see the reasons: "Muttersprachler" is informal and should be avoided in formal discussions (like job interviews). Therefore, "Portugiesisch ist meine Muttersprache." is the best solution.

comment How do I build subordinative clauses relating to genderless nouns?
You may use names with article in southern parts of Germany and in Austria (and in the TV-show "Sendung mit der Maus" ;), i.e. when talking to small children). However, You are always on the safe side if You don't use articles with persons' names.
