No models are really being changed, but there are new models comming out along with some extra bits for a Tau commander Box and maybe a sprue for a sms system on the devilfish transport.

New models are the Vespid, Piranaha and the skyray tank

The new Stealthsuits are different suits and so the models (and rules) are different I believe. They certainly look a lot chunkier now :P

Don't forget the new Ethereals, new Space Pope and Commander with all that bling

Yes I am almost positve that they can be used. But (having not read the new codex) I think that they can't be used in the same squad.
