    You mentioned some of my favorite topics, so let's begin the discussion.
 
    You say there is no gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2, claiming that in vs. 1 God created everything and in vs. 2 He tells how he did it.  It seems logical.  I chuckle at this because I used to believe that too.  It never occurred to me to question that if He created everything in vs. 1 that I should then ask why the Earth was "without form and void."  A world that is without form and void is incomplete - not fully created.
 
    It wasn't until I read Dr. Richard Eby's first death experience (he died two times), where he went to Heaven and spent considerable time talking with God, that God explained to him what happened at creation.  When God returned him to life, Dr. Eby then wrote a book about it entitled, "Didn't You Read My Book?"  The book (published by Destiny Image Publishers, Inc., 7th printing in 1998) was so named because every time he asked God a question God replied, "Didn't you read My book?"  Dr. Eby passed away for the last time around the turn of the century so I suspect his book is probably no longer available on the market.  Therefore, I will quote you a portion from my copy of page 21:
 
    "My book tells of the time when Lucifer's rebellion in Heaven changed some things.  He sought to usurp My Father's Throne, assume His position as The Most High God and to rule the universe.  For that blasphemy Lucifer was cast from Heaven to Earth.  In fact, I saw him fall as a bolt of lightning!  In a tantrum of hate and rage over being deposed so fast he and his fallen angels disfigured Our perfect Earth.   It became void and uninhabitable."  Note, that implies a gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2.
 
    Next, you say that "only the angels who defiled themselves with women are in chains of hellfire.  All the rest of the fallen angels are deceiving people today as they always have done."  I take it you got this idea from popular Christian book authors based on Genesis 6:4 which reads as follows:
 
"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."
    A Jewish scholar has pointed out that the giants were already on the Earth when the "sons of God" came because the verse says "and also after that."  The book of Enoch claims three men from a military race known as Gregori left their first estate (planet), came to Earth and intermarried with women which ended up creating the giants.  Some of them reside in the Solomon Islands to this day.  UFOs are seen going in and out of caves in those islands where the giants live which causes people to reason that there is a link between the giants and aliens. 
In addition, the "sons of God" who "came in unto the daughters of men and they bare children to them" were not angels.  Genesis 6:4 says they were "sons of God." "Sons of God" are "heirs to salvation," which means they were from the sin seed of Adam and needed the blood of Jesus to be saved.  That negates them being angels.
The "sons of God" were most likely the righteous sons of Adam who warned them not to go down into the valley where Cain (who murdered Abel) lived with his descendants lest they become like him.  They disobeyed after Adam died and were lured down the mountain into the valley below by the music and beautiful women.  They ended up intermarrying with them which resulted in their offspring being called "men of renown."  This account is in "The Book of Adam and Eve" in the Library of Congress.  It is one of many books known as "The Lost Books of Eden."
The Bible says, "To those who believe in Him (Jesus) He gives the power to become the 'sons of God'..." John 1:12  We humans must believe in Jesus to obtain salvation.  The good angels don't need salvation and the bad ones (fallen 1/3rd) are in Hell waiting Judgment Day and can't be saved.  There is no in between. 
Plus, the book of Psalms and Hebrews say that God never called angels His "son(s)."  Hebrews 1:5 "For unto which of the angels said He at any time, Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten thee?  And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to Me a Son?"  This means He never called angels His "son(s)" and never will.
This eradicates the claim that "only the angels who defiled themselves with women are in hellfire."  Remember, per Genesis 6:4 it was the "sons of God" (from the sin seed of Adam who were heirs to salvation) who mated with women - not angels.  Angels minister to the heirs of salvation but are not heirs themselves.  Hebrews 1:4:  "Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?"
Jesus told His disciples in Matthew 22:30 and Mark 12:25 that in Heaven we will be as the angels who neither marry nor give in marriage.  God didn't give angels any seed for reproduction.  He can create them when and if He needs them.  But He gave that capability to Adam and Eve so they would repopulate the Earth that had been destroyed by Satan.  He commanded them to "replenish" the Earth, which means something was here before. 
Per God, marriage is to produce "a godly seed." Malachi 2:15  By God saying marriage is to produce a godly seed and Jesus indicating angels don't marry, it means that angels do not have seed for reproductive purposes.  Think about it, when has history ever recorded the marriage of two angels to each other, or shown evidence of a pregnant angel, or recorded the birth of a baby angel?  ;0  Even the brides of Satan have never produced a child from him.
You say, "all the rest of the fallen angels are deceiving people today."  God said in 2 Peter 2:4 and Jude 1:6 that the fallen angels are in Hell "reserved in everlasting chains under darkness, unto the judgment of the great day."  He didn't break them up.  He cast them all into Hell.  So that means it is demons that are out deceiving people; not the 1/3rd fallen angels.
Demons can possess an alien just as they can a human, but that does not mean that all aliens are demonically possessed, just as not all humans are demonically possessed.  You stated, "They have already re-created some of the Nephilim like they did in Genesis."  I'm not certain where you arrived at that idea.  Demons can't create angels, nor angels demons.  They do not have seed for reproductive purposes.
There are aliens, per Psalm 33:6, that God created and blew His breath of life into to give them a living soul.  "By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth."  Per that verse, God spoke everything but humankind into existence; i.e., "Let there be light."
God formed mankind from the dust of the earth and blew into him His breath of life so man could become a "living soul."  That means the first half of Psalm 33:6 is talking about inanimate objects (i.e., planets, comets, stars, etc.) and the second half is talking about human/human-like life within those "heavens."
People who have been to Heaven and back report that there is more life in the heavens than we could ever hope to find in one lifetime.  So not all aliens are demonically possessed.  This means there are good aliens and bad ones, just as there are good humans and bad ones.  How to differentiate between the two?  Per the Bible, by their deeds; good or bad.
