For your question 1 I decided for me at least that a commando in a critical condition is not visible, based on two points:
- firstly, there's no icon for being visible on the token in contrast to the back of the standard commando token
- secondly on p. 19 paragraph on "First Aid Kit" it says: "In this case [when healing a commando in critical condition] replace the critical condition commando token with their stealthy token except if they are located on a large tile: then the commando is visible."
As there are both possibilities after healing I'd say the commando is in a kind of "not existing" mode while critically injured until either healed or eliminated.
This was discussed quite some time ago and above is my answer again - Thibaud didn't say anything against it, though answering in the same thread, therefore I still stick to it.
