Is River Song considered a timelord?
Or is she considered a "fancy" human that can regenerate?
Do we know anything of her physiology to let us know if she is a timelord (eg. two hearts), or (again) just plain ol' "fancier" human?

No. River Song is not a Time Lord. The title and distinction belongs solely to those beings from the world of Gallifrey who have been indoctrinated, trained and introduced to the Time Vortex via a particular set of rituals, instruction and guidance.
River Song is a human who has, via her conception onboard the Tardis in flight, been exposed to the unshielded energies of the Time Vortex and the DNA of the Doctor. With that exposure she seems to have gained before her death:
As far as physically, her physiology appeared to be that of a human female with only one heart. She did possesses exceptional fighting capabilities and was highly intelligent. She dies saving the Doctor on the Library planet and is living a digitized and immortal existence in the library's virtuality. (DW: Forest of the Dead)
