Default Support HQ squads

How do they work? I see a 0-2 under them all in the HQ selection area, but I want to know just how you add them to the army, and where they go.

Don't have codex on me, so anyone correct me if I got this wrong -

You can take up to 5 support choices along with each HQ squad (not including HQ squads taken as part of infantry platoons.)
They take up the same force selection space as the HQ squad (i.e. you can get up to 6 squads including HQ on the one slot)
The 0-2 with each type represents the fact that no more than two of each support squad choice can be included in the 0-5 support choices in the HQ slot (so of the 0-5, you could have 2 of each of 2 types of support squad and one of another for example)
Remember that some of the choices need doctrine points if you are using doctrines.

Like BigWolf said

It's like a retinue/ body guard.

In plain language, you buy them when you buy your Command HQ.

They that unit can be place anywhere on your side.
