You do not pay points for the stealth field generator, it is a part of the Stealth teams armour and Sniper Drones have it built in. The rules in the codex are there purely to tell you how it works.
Basically the Stealth generator is included in the points cost of the XV25 and Sniper Drones (oh and Shadowsun)
You cannot take a Stealth field generator as an extra item of wargear or battlesuit support system.

Which leads to another question. I know that when you have a HQ it's a crisis suit team but, can you have a stealth suit team as your HQ?

Nope, sorry. The only HQs that we have are the Shas'el and Shas'o Crisis Commander (who we HAVE to take... he's 1+), and the Ethereal (who is a rather questionable choice).

No. A Crisis Suit commander is listed under the HQ section. A Stealth Team is listed under Elites. So you can't have a Stealth Team HQ. See the codex.

yes but you could have a single crisis commander, he would then be an ic, so can join a stealth team. (which is why i wanted to put a stealth sheild gen on him but now know that is impossible)

Not unless you are using the Special Character Commander Shadowsun. As stated before the only 2 HQ for the Tau are the XV-8 commander and the ethereal...but Commander Shadowsun can be used as your mandatory commander (instead of the Crisis suit commander), thus giving you a Stealth HQ. Obviously you need to have a big army for she can only be fielded with a 1500points army (like all the others)

Ahh, righteo. I believe doing so would negate the stealth-field for the rest of the team, so they're out in the open unfortunately. However you should be able to do so with Commander Shadowsun, without any adverse effects to the squad.

As long as Shadowsun's drones are still around she can't join with any unit, since she's not an IC when with them. But once all her drones are killed she could join up with the stealth team (because she because and IC).
