Question
can humans be demons in some way

Answer
There is a prior question of what a "demon" is. Usage in Greek mythology may or may not influence early Christian use, where a demon seems to be a type of evil spirit (as in Luke 8:2, and Mary Magdalene being delivered from seven demons). I can't think offhand of an instance in the Bible where any human is described as being a demon.
