Are they the same? I mean:
If I'm improvising on E Aeolian, or E minor. Am I also playing in G Major?
So it's two scales at the same time?
#3
Why yes, as it's all to do with modes. E Aeolian is a mode, which comes from the G major scale. And that link above is majorly helpful.
#4
Yes, because the E minor scale has the same notes as the G major scale, just a different root
if you play an E minor scale over a G major chord it will sound pretty much like a G major scale
#5
Yes and no.

Yes, it's the same notes, but you don't play E minor over a G major progression. It just doesn't fit, unless it's over a minor chord.

Same notes. However, if the song centers around E minor, it is therefore E aeolian. Conversely, if it centers over G Major, it is G Ionian

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
