I suggest starting with Codex.

Firewarriors are more important then pathfinders, since Firewarriors are mandatory, pathfinders are not. If you donīt have any Firewarriors, buy one box.

For Tank, Iīd buy Hammerhead. If you donīt glue the turret on, you can switch it and make a devilifsh. You also need to keep the Nose slot glue free, and have 2 Extra drones.

For starters Firewarriors are more important as they are your basic troops. You need them, pathfinders are extra. If you dont have the codex, get one, its a nececity.

To start a good basic army you need:

Crisis Battlesuite
24 Firewarriors

That gives you a commander and 2 full troops choices. On top of that I would suggest you add:

2-3 Crisis Battlesuits
Gun Drone Squadron
Hammerhead Gunship

That gives you one each of fast attack, heavy support and elites. That gives you a nice well rounded army to start with.

Depends on Points limit, but generally Fire Warriors. Pathfinders are generally for games over 1500 points.

If you're looking at starting an army, I suggest you read Want to start a Tau army?
Basically, Codex + Battleforce, then probably some stealth and a hammerhead would be the general suggestions for starting an army.
