Are they all powerful/knowing? Clearly not, though they have power beyond that of humans.

Are they Aliens? Well they aren't from earth, so yes they are.

Do they use magic or science? They obviously have tried and tested processes for harnessing forces that humans don't yet understand (i.e. there has to be a science to their magic), otherwise how do they control it and get the repeatable, desired results?

There isn't really a clear cut answer.
I agree. It's about how you define things and many of these concepts have several definitions.
