The Combine are alien, but the people you see (the guards etc.) are the primary military force of the Combine. They are humans who have been modified into "trans-human" cyborgs.

These are the Combine

Dr Breen "negotiated" a peace agreement with the Combine that saved humanity, but at the cost of enslavement. Dr. Breen was appointed as ruler of Earth — a puppet of the Combine. Some speculate he may have orchestrated the events of Half-Life 1 at the request of the Combine, with the rule of Earth promised as reward; others believe that Dr. Breen may have been under the impression that introducing the Combine would have brought about a cosmic unity between the two races, and would have been ultimately beneficial for the human race whether or not he was the one who introduced the Combine to Earth, his intentions seem to be noble and he sounds quite convinced that he is doing the right thing. Even if he has selfish reasons for doing so, the human race would have most definitely been completely destroyed or assimilated by the Combine had he not surrendered Earth at the end of the 7-hours War.

Nope, that is not true. They are machines but the Combine made them look like that.

#1) The Combine, since gaining dominance on Earth, has invented a large number of devices and machines, some of which are offensive, and others which are used in the day-to-day policing and surveillance of the general populace. A majority of the Combine's technology present on Earth is actually nothing more than human technology re-interpreted and re-made by the Combine, using its own materials. Technology such as helicopters, turrets, and wheeled vehicles are all human technology, re-made by the Combine.

#2) The primary military force of the Combine on Earth is the humanoid Combine Overwatch (referred to by Doctor Breen as the "Transhuman arm of the Combine Overwatch"): humans who have been modified into "trans-human" cyborgs. They are the most frequently-encountered foes throughout Half-Life 2.

And #3) The Combine is a vast empire spanning multiple dimensions. The empire is inhabited by an unknown number of sentient, intelligent species, and appears to be governed by a race of bizarre, artificially-evolved Advisors (see below). The Combine expands its empire by invading worlds and enslaving the dominant species to be exploited as it sees fit. By manipulating these inhabitants, through methods including bioengineering and implantation, the Combine creates a race of super-soldiers uniquely adapted for the environment of that particular world. This process results in a highly mobile and adaptive military force which is able to respond to any threat and crush any opposition. The reasons behind the Combine's imperialism remain unknown throughout the game.

Note that the name "Combine" is not the actual name of the alien race or their empire; rather, it is the name by which humans refer to both. It is also worth noting that vocal stress is placed on the first syllable. The name is pronounced as the noun COM-bine, as in combine harvester, as opposed to the verb form com-BINE, as in "to join together or unite." The actual name of the Empire is never fully revealed: Dr. Breen refers to it as the Universal Union, but it is unknown if this is the official name used by the Empire itself.

The Combine Advisors are the face of the Combine Empire, suggesting that they are probably the original master race behind the alien empire. They briefly appear in the game, in Doctor Breen's office, on giant monitors. Physically, they resemble large grub-like creatures, belonging to a species which most likely passed its singularity long ago. As a result of their expertise in developing advanced technology, the Advisors have evolved to an artificial state which is undoubtedly vastly different to their original physical state. They seem to be unable to manipulate objects or move around on their own, they are virtually blind, and they have a large number of other physical handicaps. As a result, the Advisors are totally dependent on their highly advanced technology in order to survive, and are probably unable to live without their mechanical aids. However, because of their life support, they have reached a technical immortality.

Signing off! lol
