Is a cloud gaseous water or condensed water?yes
The boundary of the cloud is not a true edge: water is going in and out of the cloud all the time. But only within the region of the cloud is the aerosol stable. Any water outside of the cloud is either in the gaseous state, or is precipitations (solid or liquid).
A good example of this is the lenticular cloud that can form on the leeward side of a mountain. The wind pushes humid air up the windward slope which condenses on the leeward side. The cloud formed remains in position with respect to the mountain, but the moisture forming it is constantly being removed by the wind, as the same wind brings in new moisture.
