Would it be possible for Impereal guard to take one Broadside battlesuit and with the right training use it?

Not straight away: It would require re-modelling in order to fit the taller human inside.

And as for fluff back up? I'm sure that in the old dex theres was a little inquisitor report about a Necromunda gang using them.

I don't know what codex you were reading but it wasn't Codex Tau.

Fluffwise,

NO humans cannot use tau suits, crisis stealth or broadside. The pilot is linked to it via a neural link and control its movements with thought impulses. The tau brain is alien to a humans and the system zaps a non tau user into a potato state forever. Also all suits are programmed with friendly fire failsafes that wouldnt allow them to accidentally fire at another tau... so a human piloting one would have a difficult time aiming it at tau.

cheers

I think there was a reference in the previous tau codex about the tau handing over hunting rigs in exchange for trading rights or something

those are special modified suits for extreme type sports called Spyre Hunters and sold on the blackmarket in necromunda hive complexes to aide in the tau propaganda machine for the greater good (pg 63 Codex Tau). Pretty much something like bobafett wears... no evidence to support my example though. But as far as a proper weapons grade battlesuit goes... no chance. Those are simply rich boys toys.

The commissariat and Adaptus Mechanicus would not let any guardsmen get a hold of a broadside, as they trust their own gear more then a foul Xenos'. Anyway, possession of an Xenos artifact is heavily punishable by imperial law. Maybe a heavily modified one might be in a remote frountier colony on the eastern fringe, but not in the Guard.

Well maybe the Inquisition might have one and are maybe toying with it to understand it more.
