I can't for the life of me remember his name, from the Bounty Hunter storyline.

<--------But he happens to be my profile pic.

Anyway, i was wondering: The minute i saw this guy, i the first thought that came to my head was "Grievous". The masks look extremely similar, and since Grievous was given a robotic body due to injuries, is that what Grievous looked like before? Are they the same species? And what species is that?

Yea, I caught on to it aswell. Its a warrior species known as the Kaleesh.

Yes, it is the same species as Grievious was before being rebuilt into a droid.

Grevious was a a Kaleesh general who was terribly injured in a starship crash and was rebuilt as a cyborg by the Intergalactic Banking Clan who promised they would help his starving war devestated people if he served them and the Separatists. SI's get a Kaleesh apprentice named Xalek.

sorta, if u noticed in Ep III, Obi-Wan shot organs. Grievous was injured and the Sepratists rebuilt him using droid parts. So he's like a cyborg

Like others have said, technically grievous was a cyborg, but only his brain and eyes remained from his original body. (Dont ask why he coughed, that was a personal peeve of mine).

The avatar picture is a kaleesh companion one of the classes gets.

Wrong. His major organs were still inside of his cyborg body, they're what Obi-Wan shot after prying open the chassis.

He's a Kaleesh, Greivous became a droid after Darth Tyrannus shot his ship down with lightning and then blamed the incident on the Jedi(this part might be wrong, but he definitely blamed on the Republic or something), hence he became a general in the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
