Both.

Something I've wondered though.

Where have they all gone by the time of the films? Has the bloodline just been that diluted that the ridges etc don't show up any more?

Without checking up on lore, I'd guess that the Sith species have mostly died out by the time of the films; at most there can be small, obscure groups or cults here and there, but that's it. Even in SWTOR, their bloodline has already been weakened and is far from pure. I'd think that this tendency would continue in the future, and the wars with the Republic couldn't have helped.

Both. The Sith Religion is based on the Primary Belief of the Sith Species.

The Sith are in fact a race of beings encountered by dark jedi....The jedi (who seemed like gods to the Sith) became the ruling class and became "Lords" over the Sith, hence the title "Sith Lord". It was only thousands of years later that the "Sith" label included other species.

Yes and actualy give meaning to the sith order. I would also say that these dark jedi perform dark side rituals to be able to mingle to the sith species and create a hybrid between human and sith. The closest on their looks would be how they apear in game. Knowned siths like Naga sadow and ludu kresh where hybrids for instance. I want to say also that this is canon. Its not G canon but everything related to olde republic like the great hyperspace war, exar kun wars, the mandalorian wars, Revan story ( KOTOR) is part of EU canon.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

Pretty much. There'd probably be people who were 1/10,000th Sith, but no one can tell without a fairly extensive DNA test.
