All Noble titles (with the exception of most Knighthoods) are normally inheritable unless otherwise specified (though in some cases, the particular duties and responsibilities associated with a particular individual's See (if any), along with the associated perks, may not be).

Manner of inheritance and succession are normally specified in the grant of Noble patent, but often follow traditional associated cultural norms.

If there's no suitable heir according to whatever laws happen to apply, can a Duke just appoint a Baron to a particular title? I thought that power was reserved solely to the Emperor?
A Duke does not have the authority to appoint anyone to a noble title, other than personal retainers to locally-recognized knighthoods at the subsector level (though these are often referred to Archdukes or the Emperor for consideration for appointment into established Imperial and/or Domain orders of Knighthood).

Archdukes may appoint people to Orders of Knighthood associated with their Domain, or appoint Baronets and occasionally Barons within their Domain; but such Baronets and Barons rank behind Imperially appointed Baronets and Barons (and they may or may not be considered Peers in the sense of being Landed and having voting rights in the Moot - that is still unclear).

it might be reserved for the emperor, but that doesnt stop a fait accompli situation where the locals elevate and install a candidate for him to confirm, or as a "caretaker" until the emperor makes his decision. considering the number of barons and above, while the power might be reserved for the Emperor himself, I bet its routinely dealt with by agents of his household.

Or them discussing and then recommending a candidate to the emperor for elevation, as someone who is acceptable to the local peerage (which might be a important factor in any selection process).


Quote:
I was going to suggest that as the demise of a noble without a declared heir could cause disruption throughout a region, this sort of thing would be tracked by an Archduke's administration and preventative measures put in place.

That those measures, ie: nominating a suitable heir, would be undertaken doesn't mean that they would go unopposed. Particularly if connections and influence was used to have a particularly pliable heir named, but a far more suitable heir, with an approximately equal claim, then challenged the ruling at the time of the old baron's death.
so the set up for the War of the Austrian Succession, then?
