It does not matter from where you have taken the Masters Degree.  You will be considered as a Domestic Student, provided you are a US National. Otherwise you will be considered as an  International Student only.  Most of the Phd's are fully funded.  Your overall academic profile, GRE Scores and Research experience will be taken in to account, before an admit is given by the University.

You are international student as you do not hold USA citizenship. It does not matter whether you study in UK or in USA, your student status will not change to domestic.

Your UK Masters is valid for USA PhD. Admission for PhD will depend on your profile and your interest area. You will have to do research with individual USA University to know the interest area they offer for PhD and to meet the admission requirement. It is further very important that you correspond with the USA University professors where you have applied to improve your admission chances. I hope this helps. Good luck!
