Now, will that final war be fought just amongst mortals, or will it also be fought by spiritual beings on both sides, also? (on the lines of the legendary last battles of the Norse Gods at Ragnarock?)

Here is what Elder McConkie says about the final battle:

Battle of the Great God
Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p.74 BATTLE OF THE GREAT GOD
See GOD OF BATTLES, GOG AND MAGOG, MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, WAR. After the millennium Satan "shall be loosed for a little season, that he may gather together his armies. And Michael, the seventh angel, even the archangel, shall gather together his armies, even the hosts of heaven. And the devil shall gather together his armies; even the hosts of hell, and shall come up to battle against Michael and his armies. And then cometh the battle of the great God; and the devil and his armies shall be cast away into their own place, that they shall not have power over the saints any more at all." (D. & C. 88:111-115.) This final great battle, in which evil spirits, mortal men, and resurrected personages all participate, will be the end of war as far as this earth is concerned. Then the earth shall be celestialized and become the abode of the righteous forever. (D. & C. 88:16-31, 116.)

"While we cannot agree with others on certain matters, we
must never be disagreeable. We must be friendly,
soft-spoken, neighborly, and understanding." (President
Gordon B. Hinckley, October 2003)
