Tau seem to live to about 40-50 years - but they mature at a much earlier age compared to humans.

Tarellians are 'Dog Soldiers' mentioned in various pieces of fluff, though it hasn't been explicitly stated that they are part of the Empire - I think they are more likely to be roving merc bands.

So far as we know, the races in the Empire include Tau (duh), Kroot, Nicassar (who were the first alien race to become part of the Empire), humans (there are colonies of humans descended from soldiers who were abandoned at the end of the Lithesh War, as well as new human worlds who were conquered in the Third Sphere Expansion) and Vespids. There are likely plenty of other races, but we haven't been told anything yet!

The Demiurg are a race with close ties to the Tau, they have aided them technologically in the past (and continue to do so) and have made their starships available - for the right price, or for a common interest - but they are not members of the Empire - the Tau asked, they declined, the Tau wisely decided not to pursue the matter!

Not for 40k. *The Squats used to be around but are no longer existing, and the Nicassar and Demiurg have ships in Battlefleet Gothic. *The Vespid models and rules are coming out with the new Tau codex, and the Gue'Vesa (human soldiers) are in Chapter Approved.

And realy, please use a forum search... these questions have been asked countless times before.

Models - What there is at the moment, that is Tau, Kroot, and Gue'vesa. Vespids models are coming soon, whilst nicassar and demiurg are only mentioned in fluff etc I believe.
