The Kel-Tec PLR 16

What is that gun technically listed as? Is it a handgun, or is it legally classed as a short barrel rifle? ( And if its a handgun, is it still legally a handgun if one adds a shoulder stock to it? )

it is a pistol. as soon as you add the butt stock to it, it becomes a rifle.... and a rifle with a barrel that short is considered a class III weapon.
