no. 1 how do you pronounce the name?
no. 2 it says in gaunts ghosts that they are mercenaries fighting for chaos are they an "evil" race as such?
no. 3 how could i represent them in a guard army and have there ever been models or rules for them?

1. I pronounce it as 'LOECKS-OE-ATEL', as its very Aztec.
2. They are mercenaries for chaos, they also feature in a short story by Graham McNeill, 'The Skull Harvest', in the same way as in the Gaunt's Ghost novels.
3. No, other than fan-made conversions there haven't been any models or rules for them.

They've never been shown as mercenaries to anyone else, and their Lexicanum entry doesn't specify anyone else they may have allegiance too. It is theoretical they could hire themselves out to others, but not to Imperials (at least not the loyal, xenos-hating ones).

If you want them in your army, maybe use Rough Rider rules and convert your own models.

I gather that like many other Xenos races their home world(s) has been ravaged, destroyed or even colonised by the Imperium who they now hate with a vengence. Chaos is the natural enemy of the Imperium and the enemy of my enemy is my friend attidute is kind of prevalant in these cases.......
