The answer to your question is as follow:

(1) The word noor means light as Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran: ?? ?D ??? ?? ? ?T?? ???? Since, light itself is illuminated and it illuminates other things as well, due to this reason the prophets (یa? ???) are called noor, because they themselves were guided and showed the others the way to Allah and led them to right path. So, on account of this meaning, every religious guide is also noor. The word in Hidith: ??? ?? ???? implies the same meaning.
Shortly, the Prophet (? ?? ? ??) is Noor as well as a human-being. Those, who mean by the word Noor that the Prophet (? ?? ? ??) is not a human-being but is like angels, they are wrong. It was the belief of the infidels that there is contradiction between humanness and prophethood, they used to say that only angel could be a prophet. The Holy Quran rejected their belief at several places.
(2) The majority of the Ummah believes that the Prophet (? ?? ? ??) is alive in his blessed grave with a particular life, and what is real status of this life it is known to Allah alone.

(3) It is found in Ahadith that the first thing Allah has created before the universe was the noor of the Prophet Muhammad (saws). Muhaddiseen
