In science there are many different types of energy from vague energies like bacic energy[Potential energy(chemical, nuclear, gravitational, or mechanical energy) & Kinetic Energy(temperature, electric or sound energy)] you can look at some energies being simalar in perspective or some energies can influence others in a positive or a negitive way. For a fictional perspective of chakra and chi/ki, they are natural energies inside of many creatures(including humans). They do have simalar purposes.

That's not how it works. Potential or chemical is not some "vague" or "basic" energy. Electric energy is also not kinetic.
So in that case infinite tsukuyomi shouldn't work on everybody and neither Itachi nor Shisui can put the average person under a genjutsu. Hagoromo shared chakra with his followers, who then did the same with others and so Ninja appeared. I am pretty sure that not everyone in the world has chakra(most certainly not cats, who also happened to be placed under the genjutsu), so there should be a lot of normal people who can resist it. This didn't seem to be the case. I don't know if this is another plot hole, but if it's not, then it simply means that you don't need to have chakra in order to be place under genjutsu.
Chakra, Ki, and Chi are one and the same. They are the result of a mixture of spiritual and physical energy. They are from the same things and can do similar things. Therefore, genjutsu can affect ki/chi users.

every life form in the naruto world has chakra in them, they had it in them even before hagoromo spread ninshu. all he did was teach them how to mold their individual energies together. in that regards kaguya claiming that all chakra belonged to her was a lie, since all chakra is simply an individuals molded energies. with that being said chakra is just spiritual and physical energy, beings who possess chi/ki/mana etc should be effected by genjutsu simply because in most stories, chi/ki/mana/chakra/magic etc etc all work in a similar fashion and are all made from some combination of physical and spiritual energy, even the ki in dragon ball has physical and spiritual energy(albeit it with some other vague stuff thrown in)
on a side note kgsanime thats not what kinetic energy is, kinetic energy is defined as energy that a body possesses by virtue of being in motion. kinetic origin: greek kinein> greek kinetikos> mid 19th century kinetic:from greek kinetikos, from kinein"to move"
