I guess Magnus is amongst the more popular ones due to his beam of power,
very handy for destroying super heavy tanks and buildings. Second in line is
probably moratarion, with some average luck he can decimate very large troop
formations.

I divide chaos into two army types: cult army and chaos marine army. The cult
army has a lot of minitaurs and trolls with beatmen and all sorts of demons.
The chaos marine army looks a lot like a regular marine army with land
raiders, rhinos and dreadnoughts. Itend to favor chaos marine armies since it
gives me the power of a marine army with the awesome magic of chaos.

Depends. If you use thechaos marine based army with titan support you may
actually have a good army for long ranged shooting and close combat. If
demons are your liking you must find ways to close the gap between the enemy
and your troops, chaos magic helps but the use of cover is paramount.

Your strength are your chaos cards use them wisely. Dont hold on them to save
your greater demons when they may be used to secure objectives elsewhere.

Your greatest liability is lack of realiable long ranged firepower and
artillery.

Depends on what chaos power you like the most:

khorne: bloodletters
tzeentch: pink horrors
nurgle: plague bearers
slaneesh: demonettes.

Demon engines are nice especially tower of skulls and a few cannons of khorne
wont hurt either.
