Chinnamasta is the Hindu Goddess of transformation. She is one of the Mahavidyas, the wisdom Goddesses, and is probably the most terrifying of them. She is depicted holding her own head, which she has just cut off. Learn more about Chinnamasta here Chinnamasta Shivashakti

Chinnamasta is a Buddhist deity/yidam, an emanation of Vajrayogini.

No it isn't. There is no relationship between the two. Krodhakali is a form of Vajrayogini. Vajrayogini is not Kali.
That makes things clear.

Depends on who you ask.
