Range Touch Attacks, and Path of War Maneuvers?

Using Adamant Entertainment’s Warlock class School Ability – Arcane Bolt, a ranged touch attack.

Arcane Bolt (Su): You can make a ranged touch attack that does 1d6 points of damage, +1d6 for every two warlock levels. The warlock may choose whether the damage is acid, cold, electricity, or fire. The range on an Arcane Bolt is 100ft. + 10ft./level.

Can it be used with interchangeably between melee and ranged attack maneuvers with the Path of War rules or is it strictly a ranged attack? If ranged only do I still need Point-Blank Shot and Precise Shot and Defensive Shot/Casting vs AOOs?
