Current abilities called Characteristic-Defining Abilities (CDAs) function everywhere. Lord of Extinction has a P/T CDA. Other than CDAs, the traits of a card very rarely change. The effect of Angelic Overseer grants the creature that it represents on the battlefield those abilities, but it does not change the text nor abilities of the actual card.

No, Hexproof only applies to permanents and players. Indestructible only applies to permanents.

The effect of Angelic Overseer means "The creature that is represented by this card has Hexproof and Indestructible if you control a Human."

Hope this helps!!

Does Angelic Overseer have Hexproof and Indestructible in the graveyard if I control a human?

Seems like the perfect home for Angelic Overseer: "whoops, I'm invincible again." I'm also quite excited by the idea of Firecat Blitz. Since they have Haste and aren't put into play already attacking, you just get X triggers off of Winota on demand. The fact they don't stick around probably won't matter too much when it immediately floods the board in humans! Elemental Mastery could be another way for a human to keep bringing in more humans turn after turn. Even Winota herself can just dig through the top 24 cards of your deck each turn!

Vindicate is a good card, but if you noticed that most of my removal is instant speed for single target and sorcery speed for mass removal. That was why Vin didn't make the cut.

Herald's Horn is a nice card (and I have three or four copies somewhere) but the reduction is nice and all, but humans are pretty cheap. The added card draw is nice, but this deck doesn't lack that.

Vanquisher's Banner was considered since it is a nice anthem and card draw, but that 5CMC is what's stopping me.

Thought Vessel is a maybe because it was a cheap mana rock. I was trying to run as many cheap mana rocks that I got back at least half the card's cost back without having to do anything extra.

Angel of Glory's Rise was considered, but since she's an angle, I didn't want to open that can of worms because then people would suggest cards like Herald of War or Angelic Overseer or Requiem Angel.

I'm not going to reject your suggestions, but these were my thoughts against them. Now I was also considering switching the commander for the partners in the deck. If I did that I would most likely run Angel of Glory's Rise AND Requiem Angel.

Since most of your creatures are human Angelic Overseer and Thalia's Lieutenant can pretty good finishers here. Cavalry Pegasus is probably a better option than Garrison Griffin here since it comes out sooner and gives most of creatures (humans) flying when it attacks with them. Honor of the Pure/Always Watching is pretty cheap and looks like it would be a nice fit for this deck. Also Knight of Meadowgrain is also really good in the early game. Hope this helps.
