[1.8 UI] Inconsistent labelling for "add hardware" form fields

Bug Description

On the add hardware action panels, we have a MAC address and an IP address, so I think using the term "Power address" is ambiguous.

Can we use "Power MAC" and "Power IP" instead to make sure it is clear what input is required from the user?

Also I see some capitalisation inconsistancies slipping in, can we make sure not to use title case (example in trunk, please use "MAC address" instead of "MAC Address")

Please ensure this is consistent across power controller types and across add hardware forms (add installable machine, installable chassis, device)

Many thanks,
Carla

Agree with "MAC address"
Disagree with "Power IP" because the power address is not always a IP address, it can be a hostname, so it is OK to say "Power address"
Disagree with "Power MAC" because regardless of it being related to the BMC, it is still a MAC Address:

So:

1. MAC address
2. Power address
3. MAC address (or Power MAC address)
