    Not all linear first order PDEs are hyperbolic, no.
    The Quora post you point to actually spells that out... the author says that some are elliptical etc.

    You classify a PDE according to the definitions of the classes... for that detail, you need a good reference on PDEs.

    Turns out to be an easy Google (use, "classifying PDEs") to get for instance:
