Okay, my bro swears tau have a elite version of firewarriors in the HQ slot- sort of like company vets but tau.
I know we had them in the old codex if you tool an etheral, but I can't see them now- am I blind or is my bro retarded(true anyways but on this particular matter is he)

Ethereal could take a squad of Firewarriors as bodyguard and they had I think +1BS. I don't know if they still can in the new Codex.

But there is the Cadre Fireblade who is a special character that I think takes up a HQ slot. He can join Firewarrior and Pathfinder units to give them various upgrades. That could be what he is referring to.

The two are not necessarily exclusive.

As to the question, no, taking an Ethereal does not give the option to take a suped-up Fire Warrior Squad.

Stubborn, 12" Leadership Aura, and Invocation of the Elements replace this rule (specifically, Storm of Fire).

Incidentally, combine an Ethereal with a Fireblade for 4 Shots in a shooting phase at half range; quite nice with a Pathfinder squad with a Pulse Accelerator. Shame there isn't one for a Fire Warrior Squad.

It was the Fire Warrior Honour Guard from the 4th ed. codex. They don't exist anymore. I believe they used to get +1 BS, Ld and I for no (?) extra cost, however you could only take them as retinue for an Ethereal.

A Fire Warrior squad joined by Cadre Fireblade in the 6th ed. codex is a bit similar, so that's probably his confusion.
