Is it ok to use characters like Shrike or Lysander in self designed chapters saying that the character is just like the aforementioned but not the same person?
If it is, would they have to be a completely new chapter or would one of the random codex chapters out of the back of the painting miniatures, or codex book be ok?
There are no limitations as to what chapter the new special characters can be fielded in. Previously, their entries would say something like "may be included in a Raven Guard army of 1500 points or more," but that is no longer the case. So, you can grab the model and use them in any army you want, paint them pink if you want and it would be fine. You could also use the "counts as" rules to say that they "count as" the special characters.
