They still have full control of movement though - so they can scurry around.

Is it going to be targeted? Skill shot? AoE of some sort? Also is this her ult?

Yes, it's just a basic CC type.

Anyone with size increases will be a bigger version of the base model.

So, a 6-stack cho'gath transforms into a slightly bigger version of the polymorph.
