Reroll the dice to see how far you can see in when night fighting rules are in effect.

I presume

Well, Tau suits can move 6 in the movement (can go over terrain) then 6 in the assault (can go over terrain). What you refer to is Marine type jump infantry. Only the Vespid may do this in the Tau Codex.

Ok, first of all, use the spell checker and patience is a virtue. Now, on to the questions:

1) Acute senses I believe, allows the model to detect hidden units. Sorry, I have no idea what hidden units means or how you hide them in the first place.

2) Normal jump packs allow the user 12' movement and 6' assault and is able to move over usually impassable terrain.Tau jet packs on the other hand allow the user to move 6' in the movement phase and 6' in the movement phase even if it doesn't move into assault. Tau jet packs also provide a stable firing platform so the user can fire rapid fire weapons at full capacity even after moving.

They move the extra 6" in the assault phase, the shooting phase is before the assualt phase so therefore they move after shooting aswell

No I don't think so, they either move an extra 6" or charge 6" they dont get a charging distance of 12"
