I take it that means it has to be legal under 5th ed rules - for example, a 5-man Tactical Squad with a Plasma Cannon, while legal under the old SM codex, would not be legal here as the latest codex rules would, presumably, apply?

So this is a normal, current codex, legal troops unit without transport veichle.
So i'd assume Nobz (as a single unit may be taken as troops for every Warboss) wouldn't be permitted because it's not under the troops section

Where multiple squads are taken as a single Troops choice, such as in an Imperial Guard Infantry Platoon, would we be required to submit the full Troops choice (i.e. a minimum of a Platoon Command Squad and 2 Infantry squads) or would we just be allowed to enter a single Infantry squad?

So yes since it need to be based to be legal.

Only a single squad from a formation like an Infantry Platoon is allowed; for simplicity, an Infantry or Conscript squad, as the others are more specialized.
