Do effects which boost ranged attacks, also boost magical ranged attacks?

Eg1 eIrusk Fire for Effect on Valachev Aiyanna and Holt. Holt gets boost for first hand cannon, but whether Aiyanna would get a boost for Harm.
Eg2 pIrusk feat on greylord outriders, whether Frostbite gets a bonus to models under the spray.

No. Ranged attacks and magic attacks are completely separate in terms of types of attacks, despite sharing several rules.

Canadianized is correct about the whole magic and ranged attack thing, but I would just like to correct this mistake.
Fire for effect affects a single model, not an entire unit, so the above example doesn't work even if you thought FFE worked on magic attacks. If you put FFE on Holt then only Holt will benefit from it etc.

Your question is misleading: The examples you give are for magic attacks, but magical ranged attacks are a completely different thing (they are ranged attacks made with a weapon with the :Magic-Wpn: advantage). Whenever you're dealing with the latter, everything regarding ranged attacks will still apply.

@falkman
Apologies yes I didn't word it correctly; Meant to distinguish betweeen putting FFE on HOlt or on Aiyanna.

@vintersbastard
So would the correct terminolgy be:-
Arcane Tempest gun Mages have a magical Ranged attack
Greylord outriders and Aiyanna have a magical attack?

Thanks guys

Don't worry. Many peoples confuse about it because of simillar spelling.

As said above, Magical is an advantage tha attached to weapons(so magical melee/ranged attack), and Magic is attack type(melee, ranged, magic).

And juckto is right for your second question as well.
