"The squad CANNOT be any sort of retinue (or any squad allowed in the HQ section)"

Does that mean that I cannot take an Apothecary in my Tactical Squad, even if I have Purity Above All? Or does it simply restrict HQ choices, such as Commissars?

I would imagine it is mostly there to eliminate entries where the focus is on one HQ model and a few other normal models, like Inquisitor retinues or Command Squads.

Hmm, time for me to show you some of the Eldar I'm repainting (up to 5 highlights and 4 shades in every piece of armor, I'm very proud of them).

Bayruun, it's like Khanaris said, you can enter your Tactical squad with an Apothecary.

Kalten I'm looking forward in seeing your Eldar squad. Be sure to follow the minimum squad size. What type of squad do you want to enter? As long as it isn't a HQ choice then it should be fine.

Waargh, Space Marines also have a Terminator command squad and an Elites squad. So yes I think you can enter your Chaos Chosen.

Xyster, no I am afraid that squad is not legal anymore. So you can't enter it.

Maybe you can think of something else?
