ok i'll just get right into q's
1) I heard that this army is realy good against chaos marines so are they very good against other armys.
2) are you able to put some imperial guard soldiers in your force and still get the DH special abilities
3) should I get the codex or the rules first
sorry if this has already been posted
1) its not really that an army is better suited to play against another army, its how you you play your tactics, and your list. But some of the DH's rules benefit to play against chaos, or demons
2)Yes you are allowed to allie Imperial Guard troops into your DH army, and i dont think you lose any DH special rules, it if you allie DH into and IG army that you may lose some abilities
3)By rules im guessing you mean the 40k Rulebook, i would suggest getting that first, or both at the same time. But the rulebook may turn you from other armies and towards others so dont get both unless your 100% sure your going DH

DranZer basically said it all, but I'll put my own views in for a second opinion ^_^
1) Daemonhunters are actually really good against Daemons, not Chaos Space Marines. All of their special rules only affect Daemonkind, and they have a bunch of anti-Daemon wargear. They actually have only ONE piece of wargear that's effective against Chaos Space Marines at all. But they are by no means bad against CSM, or against any other army for that matter. Daemonhunters require good tactics to use, but if used right, are very effective against ANY army.
2) The Daemonhunters codex outlines the specifics, but yes, you CAN use some inducted Imperial Guardsmen in a DH army. You don't lose ANYTHING from the DH army, rules OR units, when doing this, but your selection of Imperial Guard units is limited. If, instead, you play an Imperial Guard army with Daemonhunter allies, you're very limited to what Daemonhunter units you can use and how many, but have full access to Imperial Guard units and rules.
3) Definitely buy the WH40K rulebook first, since that'll allow you to start learning the game before you choose an army. The rulebook talks about all of the existing armies, and has pictures of them, so you can get a better idea of what's available to you. If you buy the Daemonhunter's Codex first, you would be stuck with that army before even knowing what else is out there.
