Then what is Lua?

It is the language defined in the Lua manual... At least the core part.

IMO Lua is a template to let you define a script language for your application.

And in reality, it is, you cannot use lua code written for one game in
another different game.

The language is (in general) the same. Only the API changes.

Lua is a language engine.

Lua is a language (which can be customized, like any language) to which you can attach various libraries (like any other language).
