Alchemy is the art of transmutation or the art of transformation. By anime-average, Alchemy is an occult practice that sits between science and sorcery...

There are several instances that the Black Order practiced alchemy, one of their product is Yu Kanda which he was genetically altered by means of magic. Implanting a shard of the Akuma Egg to several Black Order Exorcist resulted the formation of the CROW, a elite unit consist of Human-Akuma. In other words, the CROW unit consist of several chimeras(if I borrow the terms from FMA and Slayers.)

Furthermore, The Black Order is based on the Rosicrucian Order's philosophy and religious view. If you pay attention to details, the Black Order's emblem strikingly resemble to the Rosy Cross emblem. The Rosicrucian Order is well known for their practice of alchemy.

As for Busou Renkin, I have to admit that this anime is loosely based on alchemy despite the fact the title of this series is "Arms Alchemy", however, the series does has some basic characteristic of alchemy(transmutation and transformation of objects) although it didn't imply anything about turning base metal into gold or the quest for immortality.

Well in terms of talent I think Ed is the most powerful, I feel he hadn't even tapped into his full potential yet on the show.
