Are marshals and generals military personnels who are doing their military services and they must be subjected by the military laws too?

Of course. All military people are subject to the "code of service discipline."

As 5 Star General MacArthur learned the hard way........the PRESIDENT is still THE BOSS.
Gen. McChystal in Afghanistan also lost his command, for an E-1 mistake.
You do NOT criticize the C.I.C. while wearing the uniform.
Gen. Petraeus got himself ousted with some adulterous affair nonsense - If you were the Uniform.......you are STILL subject to the UCMJ......no matter how up you are.
Admiral Boorda, KILLED himself, when he was caught wearing service ribbons, he never earned . It's considered such a DISGRACE in the military......he blew his brains out.

Theoretically, unless you have corrupt regime. You can't get a useful answer to your question unless you state what country's military you are referring too.

Marshal and general are military ranks. The people holding those ranks are in the military and subject to whatever laws pertain to the military of their country.
In the US, generals (and admirals) are subject to the UCMJ just like anyone else.
I can't answer for the other 100 or so militaries in the world.

In theory but not in reality. About the only that gets a General in trouble is pissing of the President.

ALL serving military personnel are subject to military laws and codes of conduct.
They are also subject to the provisions of the Geneva Convention if the country that they serve is a signatory to that Treaty.
