I'd hazzard a guess that it's closest to:
NOUN 3. [in singular] A defensive posture that is adopted in a boxing or martial arts contest or in a fight.

It's basically a defensive action.

But "overwatch" is another Space Marine mode - meaning stay and watch, llike "patrol" or "sentry"?
I think "Overwatch" = Freeze or I'll fire! Stop or I'll shoot you )))
And "Guard" = Take Position for Defence and Fight or just Defence Position.
Right?

Yes, Guard and Overwatch are two different things in the game. Overwatch is for reactionary shooting with a bolt pistol. Guard is a defensive posture for close combat fighting.

Overwatch allows you to shoot during the Genestealer's turn, if you "see" the stealer make an action. Guard allows you to reroll any melee attacks done during the Genestealer's turn.
