Buddhism in China (and also Japan, Korea, Tibet, Mongolia, Vietnam and the other East Asia countries) can be cathegorized as Mahayana Buddhism.
Buddhism is very tolerant religion, so in its development, it absorbed also local and traditional religion as long as it is in harmony with the Buddhist Teaching (Dharma). For example is the homage to the ancestors, and the other practice.
And in the opposite, Buddhism influenced also the local religion like Taoism etc.
Maybe this can help.
