All of that information is contained in the above link

Short version: Hybrid means both static and mechanized elements in the Tau army list. Farsight is the specific rules in the back of the codex for fielding a farsight enclave army which is a break away faction and just an alternative way to field Tau under the command of a close combat oriented special character, commander Farsight.

Farsight Army - An army led by the special character Commander Farsight or O'Shovah. Because of his Enclaves Tau with Farsight have added limitations and are marginally better in close combat than normal Tau so have to act differently to make use of the less stronger models you are given. I myself have a Farsight army.

Hybrid Army - This would be an army tactic combining the Mech Tau philosophy (as in very mobile, all FWs in Devilfishes and no Broadsides), and the Static Tau where the models are predominantly static, usually in some form of firebase which generally consists of Broadsides and Fire Warriors. The Hybrid armies commonly tend to use Broadsides in a firebase with Kroot as far as i am aware, but i am not entirely sure as i dont play that way.

Edit: There you go, just to be sure.
