Im a space marine player who is turning to chaos. I love techmarines and wanted to know if i painted it chaos colours and added some spikes and stuff could i use the rules from the space amrine codex and say its a chaos unit?
In a word, No
But you could convert one up to be an obliterator, who, as codex CSM states, were 'often once Techmarines of the Emperor's space marines'.
Basically you exchange fixing tanks for a shedload of guns. Sounds good to me!
If I've replied, i've probably used Italics...

If you are playing Apocalypse, you likely could. Or, if you got your opponent's permission, then yeah. I mean.. if you get your opponent's permission, you can do anything. They just have to say "okay," whereas with rules directly from the codices, they don't have to say okay, they just have to put up with it.
Nothing wrong, as said, with using your Techmarine as something else; a Lord with various things, or an Obliterator, etc.
There is no legal way to use a techmarine under the current rules baring apocalyps however if your friends allow you to use the third edition chaos codex then you could use him as an Iron Warriors warsmith which is a chaos lord who can get a servo arm as wargear.
Edit: Even if you can't use the techmarine rules you could always use the model as something else if that's why you like
him. For example, you could say that he is a chaos lord and his servo arm/harnes counts as a powerfist of daemonweapon.

Use a Teckmarine with added spikes and nasties and call it an Iron Warriors Warsmith. They are obsessed with technology and implements it into their bodies. As an opponent, I would love to face that!
"The more choices you force the opponent to make, the better the chance for you to capitalize on his mistakes"
As was said, No. Unless you and your mates are just playing a casual game and nobody cares. Sounds like a load of fun to me. You could also use the SM codex and model your marines as chaos, a renagade legion in their begining. Give it a try and let us know how it worked out.
I really need to be painting right now.......
Lord w/ a daemonweapon or oblits are probably your best choice for a "counts as" model. However, you could probably also do a tzeentch sorcerer and say the servo-harness gives him the various powers.
Fabius Bile could also work as a techmarine, but then, you'd be using Fabius Bile.
