How do I use wuk & hanu taunt abilities?
It seems that most of the time it's just a suicide ability to save something else.. which in most cases isn't worth it.
Am I missing something?

You can taunt a melee hero when he is not adjacent to you (once you've upgraded the ability).

As for the 1st level, sometimes it is worth it to sacrifice the small monkey to save the minion.

So that melee hero will not be able to attack at all this turn. Right?

Yep.
This ability has high initiative. So the trick is to anticipate when the enemy hero is planning to use his red attack card and taunt him to force movement instead.

It can also be used to great effect against sniper if you manage to be not in a straight line from her (yet in radius) when she wants to shoot a minion.

Thanks, that helped.

Another thing regarding the small monkey:
It seems that it's really hard for him to get that first level up. The only way is to kill a ranged minion (killing a hero is even harder with him at level 1).
Any tips on how to get to level 2 without wasting too much rounds?

Have Sabina on your team and use Drill. Or deliver a killing blow on someone who only has a hold card in his hand.

It's hard to level-up him for a reason

Another tip to level up (though it probably won't be until the second round) is to last hit the heavy minion when it becomes available to attack. Keep in mind Hanu's red ability says "May not target melee minions", which means a Heavy minion is a valid target for it.
