There's also the bulkier Tau stealth suits which could probably be played as terminators straight up.

Its what I did with eldar wraithguard. Now it is the fall of iyanden, instead of space hulk.

Counts as is easy. Compelling mechanical redesign of the marine side is a lot more difficult. Its been done, but not very well, which is why its normally best in the long run to just go counts as.

With the elder wraithguard, how did you account for one being the terminator with claws, one having the hammer and shield, etc. Conversions? Noted some other way?

if I get some tau stealth suits for my son, this is something we'd face. IIRC, each scenario lists which marines are involved so we'd need a way to tell what suit is what termie.

Also, stealth suits come in boxes of three and a drone or something which could stand in as a fourth terminator. I'm not looking to spend more on stealth suits than I would on the game. How many scenarios play with only 3-4 terminators? Any? how about two boxes for 6-8?

Storm bolter/powerfist = wraithcannon (power fist doesn't do jack any ways rules wise)
Lightning claws = twin wraith blades
Thunder hammer/storm shield = wraith Axe/shimmer shield
Heavy flamer = wraith flamer (whatever its called)
Sergeant = warlock
Commander = farseer
12 models total

Stealth suits are harder when considering close combat weapons (tau aren't very cc oriented), so some conversion would be necessary for justification. You might need a decent amount of tau bits for that.
But the melta could be counted as a flamer.
