Does anyone else think that Sunset became an alicorn when she turn into that and will be an alicorn if she ever goes back to Equestria

I didn't, to be honest. Though I have been wondering about her EQG twin where she might be.

More then likely she just goes to a different school. Better questions how did Sunset know about the element, what it currently look like, that Twilight was going to be in the same place as the mirror, and how it would work in the human world, also why did no one wonder why Sunset had no legal guardians or parents before this, and where does Sunset live and where does she get her money, and does anyone else thing it creepy that Sunset who is a young adult was happily being a high school bully for a few years for no reason at all?

"How did Sunset know about the element,"
She was Twilight's predecessor as Celestia's personal student, so she probably read up on it.

"what it currently looked like,"
She probably didn't know that, but probably knew a spell that could detect it.

"that Twilight was going to in the same place as the mirror,"
She probably didn't count on that, but was a bonus that she was lucky for that to have happened.

"and how it would work in the human world"
She probably thought that it would work as any other Equestrian artifact, but didn't really know how powerful it was. If you look at her reaction when she first puts the tiara on, you can tell it wasn't what she expected and something she didn't really want, but was too late and her lust for power transformed her into that monster.

"Also why did no one wonder why Sunset had no legal guardians or parents before this"
That is an interesting point, maybe the age of emancipation is lower in that world, perhaps 16.

"Where does she get her money."
The simplest and most plausible answer is that she has a job somewhere. What she does is anyone's guess.

"Does anyone else think it creepy that Sunset who is a young adult was happily being a high school bully for a few years for no reason at all?
I don't know if you read the first MLP annual comic, Sunset Shimmer was power hungry, and that's the reason she became a bully, to have power no matter what."

I did read that comic, still didn't explain anything very well, and you raise many good points but there still two problems. One Sunset couldn't do magic in the human world till after the first movie, and how did she find out she got lucky in the first place. they make it look like she was just out of the portal when she got to twilight room.

Those are some good arguments which may never be canonically explained.

My best guess for the fact she couldn't use magic is she'd been away from Equestria for years, Twilight was still a filly when she left, so she couldn't recharge her magic and when she acquired the Element of Magic it overwhelmed her.

My best guess about the second part is, like I said, she may have known a spell to detect the Element and just had enough magical energy for a weak detection.

I could speculate all day, but without a canonical explanation, that's all it'll be. So my recommendation is to refer to the MST3K mantra. ;)
