Say, in a battle with a Squad, the PC attacks the squad as usual, does _not_ spend the "two Momentum" as given above. The PC has enough Momentum to select "Secondary Target". For this "Secondary Target" Momentum use, can the PC select the same Squad, but a "different individual" as target?

Say, in a battle with a Squad, the PC attacks the squad and spends two Momentum as per pg 271 to attack the Commander of the Squad. In addition, two more Momentum for "Secondary Target" is spent.

Question 1: If I use Researcher to use Sciences instead of mechanics, does this test become a science test (and I can use difficulty reduction from Scientist talent) or does it remain Mechanics test that just uses Sciences expertise and focus?
Question 2: May I chain-substitute? "Play the Part" talent from Education tree lets me use Education instead of Stealth in some situations. May I substitute Education for Stealth with "Play the Part" and then substitute Sciences for Education with "Researcher"?

What guidelines should be used for determining what is available to him?
Close combat talents "Specialist" and "Weapon master" give certain benefits when you are using chosen type of melee weapons. Do they work with unarmed strikes (if you selected 1H as your weapon type)?
Page 71 of Core Book states:

2) Simply buying items at cost, without any rolls
3) Some other variant
