If you look at the Mercenaries PDF codex, you get a list of who you can and cannot take as allies (or rather, who can take Kroot allies).

You can make, for instance, an Imperial Guard army and take a sizable contingent of Kroot Mercenaries, but you cannot make a Kroot army and throw in Imperial Guard allies.

If you wanted cadians you would have to take all compulsory choices from the guard list and then you may add 0-1 HQ, 0-1 Elites, 0-2 troops, 0-1 fast attack and 0-1 heavy support choices from the kroot list. This is all clearly explained in the codex.

The thing is, kroot are used with OTHER armies, not the other way around. If you wanted to do guard you would have to have:

1 Command Platoon
2 Infantry command squad and 4 Infantry Squads (or 2 stormtrooper/kasrkin squads, if you are using the grenadiers doctrine)

and THEN, you would only be able to take two units from the kroot merc's roster, as you may only take as many units as you have troops choices in your own army. (Thus, the most you could ever have is 1 unit from each FOC slot, and you would have to have 5 troops choices from your own army already filled)

I highly suggest that you actually take the time to read over the entirety of the Kroot Mercenaries rules. From what your post lists, you evidently don't even KNOW what units are in the codex, as you've only listed some random crap.

Please go to the GW main site (www.gamesworkshop.com), the Tau section, and in the downloads you should find the PDF file. Look it over carefully. If you can:
1.) Name every Kroot unit and what FOC slot it is
2.) State the effects of each "totem" and it's cost.
3.) Type like someone who knows what puntuation is.
...then I will be more than glad to help you sort out tactics, combinations, and strategies for using Kroot Mercenaries.

If you go on www.forgeworld.com they have alot of Kroot models like Knarlocs that could beef up an entirely Kroot army, but I don't think you could field them in a tournament or anything official....

No; re-read what people have said.

You could take an Imperial Guard Command Squad, Infantry/Armoured Fist/Conscript platoons, a Basilisk, and throw in a Master Shaper, Carnivores, Krootox, etc.

Other forces take Kroot allies - Kroot do not take allies from anywhere else.
