What is Alchemy?
In a nutshell, alchemy was "chemistry" before the periodic table. It was believed that combining the four basic properties (earth, fire, air, and water) in certain ratios could produce iron, gold, booze, and even life itself. Alchemy was no longer practiced after LaVosier's studies and the publishing of the Periodic Table of Elements.
The anime Full Metal Alchemist has very little to do with classical alchemy.
A revived belief system rooted in a primitive understanding of chemistry and medicine, given merit by the histories of fantasy fiction and practiced most successfully by tabletop gamers.

"You've got to roll a 15+ on that d20 to make the +20 HP potion and maybe with the experience points level up to a level 3 alchemist, that'll allow you to make +30 HP potions and you'll only have to roll a 12+ on the d20. If you roll under you'll destroy your potion source materials and suffer -2 HP for letting the reaction blow up in your face."
The Hermetic science and art of causing change, both physically and spiritually. The term is also used to describe the spiritual practices of chemists from other ancient cultures, such as ancient Chinese "alchemists." In the old days, there was no division seen between spiritual and physical practices, but for the sake of modern obsession with duality, alchemy can be divided into two types.
Practical alchemy _is_ chemisty, studying and manipulating the properties of matter to get what you want out of the universe.
Spiritual alchemy is what is discussed when "turning base metals into gold" is described. It is a form of mysticism, spiritual self-improvement with analogies to chemical jargon. "Gold" is spiritual perfection, while the lesser "base" metals (such as lead) are impure states of the spirit, unenlightened and full of the problems of mortal life.
Knowledgable alchemists were never trying to make a potion for eternal life or a stone that would transform physical materials into gold.
