Magical Pretty Boy Sammy

So I’ve been toying with this idea for a magical boy story. The premise is simple: an alien spacecraft shatters above Los Angeles, its fragments embedding themselves in people and giving them superpowers. The newly empowered humans start fighting each other over control of the fragments while one of the surviving aliens recruits the help of a local boy in rebuilding the spacecraft. But I want this story to make sense, and many parts of the premise don’t, such as:

Why do the spaceship's fragments grant superpowers? Why can they be reassembled like Lego?

How are they extracted from or transferred between hosts? Why can't the alien do it by itself?

How does the alien communicate with the boy? How does it survive on Earth?
