comment Did the chariot drop in importance between bronze age Greece and the iron age Greece? Why, why not?
There wasn't a decline, chariots were never militarily important in Ancient Greece. As Michael mentioned in his answer, the terrain simply wasn't suitable for wheeled vehicles. Chariots were used, but their role was mainly ceremonial or for races.

comment What was the custom/consensus regarding irregular combatants 19th century?
I'm afraid I'll have to add my close vote as well. There's nothing inherently wrong with your question, it's actually a very interesting one. However, on History.SE we are focused on specific and answerable questions, and yours is just too open ended to work with our format. You'll find a few more details on our general expectations for questions here: history.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic & history.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask
