Does the unit entry specifically have to allow the use of Drop Pods or can pretty much anything take them (vets, tacs, terms, etc)?

The drop pod can only be bought as a dedicated transport in the 5th edition Space Marines Codex. So for each drop pod you need one unit that allows for buying a drop pod as a dedicated transport in its unit entry, and only that specific unit can enter play in its own drop pod.
Black Templars Codex states which units can take a drop pod on page 22. And it seems to state that they cannot be dropped 'empty'. The unit must deploy with the pod.
