198I grew up in Texas, and deviled eggs were always part of any picnic or holiday dinner.

200Yes. "Deviled" used to used for more things, meaning highly seasoned. Not by today's standards. Deviled bones (with some meat on them, obv), deviled chicken. And this, which used to be a cupboard staple and I see is still made.
Deviled or stuffed eggs aren't halved eggs with something on top. You take out the yolks, mix things with the mashed yolk, and fill the whites with the mixture.

201It's not toppings. The yolks are mixed with various seasonings and sometimes fats like mayonnaise or butter, then put back into the while halves. Might be topped with a sprinkle of paprika or a sprig of herb or an olive slice, etc. You can call them "stuffed eggs" or "fyllda ägg" instead.
"Deviled" is an old term for some food that is highly spiced or seasoned, especially with "hot" seasonings like mustard or pepper. It dates to the late 18th C. Boswell ate "deviled bones." Besides eggs, there are deviled kidneys, ham, and others that are less common. From the Food Timeline
---Oxford English Dictionary (the 1786 reference is the first use of this word in print. Words are often part of the oral language long before they appear in print).

202I'd call these "deviled eggs," based on the picture. Fyllda ägg
They don't have "hot" seasonings, but that's not a requirement these days

(filled eggs, or stuffed eggs in English)
It's not a real dish. You can find similar recipes for filled/stuffed potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, etc. The most popular egg halves in Sweden are topped with caviar or roe and finely chopped red onions.
As a side note, that kind of filling like in deviled eggs (mashed hardboiled egg) is used as filling for avocadoes, often in combination with shrimps and mayo.
