The distinction between "entity indigenous to Hell" and "soul trapped in Hell and turned into something awful" is another matter. For sure, damned souls of former mortals aren't the same thing as bad guys that came into being on another plane of existence and never did a hitch as a mortal. That distinction has a lot more support in myth and folklore, and could be fun to explore in future works!
What about the difference between the fallen angels and the demons that formed from pure evil? I would think those that fell from grace did so because of envy and pride and the desire to rule creation in place of the Divine. The demons that formed from evil or the Abyss likely want to destroy and subjugate creation.
