You can take one armored fist squad, essentially a standard squad with a chimera, for every standard platoon you can take. The platoon HQ can always take a chimera. If you take the mechanized doctrine then every unit in your army can and must take a chimera.

The direct answer, then, is no. The standard Infantry squad cannot take a Chimera. The exception to this is in an army that takes the Mechanized Doctrine, in which case any standard Infantry Squads in the army must take a Chimera.

If you've got the money to get it all go for the mechanized option. It is very fluffy and your army will be kinda hard to take out with all those tanks scooting around!

Absolutely wrong. What it really says is that every unit of "guard infantry" (which is defined a page or two before) must take one. Stormtroopers, Ogryns, and conscripts are three examples that are not considered "guard infantry". Obviously, stromtroopers and Ogryns have the option to take chimeras, but the "mechanized" doctrine does not require them to.

I think you've just answered your own question.
