But what if I buy the unit in codex imperial guard it then doesn't have that special rule so it can transport GKT's?

As far as i know, yes you can put GKT's in a Daemonhunters version of the Chimera as a dedicated transport.
But you can not put them inside an Imperial Guard Chimera, due to the paragraph on page 30 of the Daemonhunters codex.

EDIT: Actually, they dont even have the option to take the Deamonhunters version of the Chimera anyway.
Looks like its not even possible anyway.

GW stuffed up when they basically said 'decide for yourself which one you use and come to an agreement with your opponent'.
They also said that the pdf does not supersede the codex:
"The other point that seems to be causing the most confusion is whether or not the PDF versions supersede the printed versions. They don't: you should feel free to continue to use whatever resources you have available to play your games with; the PDF does not overrule or invalidate the printed Codex book. " Don't see how there can be any argument given that particular statement.

As for needing allies, no, but it is nice to have some access to a psychic hood.

To ABT. DH units cannot share their own dedicated tranports, they are the only army that this still applies to. Yes, if you take an IG platoon and give it chimeras, then the DH units can use the IG transports. And yes, termies can ride in chimeras, they just take up two spaces.

However, as the others have said, allies are supposedly going away. Someday. Probably someday soon. So don't get too attached to the idea.
