This article in a nutshell states: Fanmade Vocaloid terminology
Human Vocaloid are live singers with Vocaloid-inspired avatars. Some of them may attempt to sound like a Vocaloid using their own voices. They usually sing music that were composed to be sung/or covered by any of the official/fanmade Vocaloids. They are prevalent in Nico Nico Douga but are present as well in YouTube. There have been other terms to describe this type of personification as the title of 'human' with 'vocaloid' is debated. A Human Vocaloid is said to be itself an irony, as a Vocaloid is meant to emulate the dynamics of human singing.
