I'm just wondering if I can put a sorceress with a unit of shades and if this is ever a good idea tactically? She would get skirmish right?

BRB p.77: a sorc on foot only can join them, she would become skirmisher as well.
The tactical problem is that shades are already excellent targets for magic missiles, it would make only matters worse, except if sorc gets strong magic resistance.

Also note that if you were to put her in the unit at the start of the game, the Shades cannot use their Scout move. Tactically, I would say no for basically the same reason Calisson stated. The unit is already a target for magic missiles etc and putting her in the unit will make them subject to greater fire. T3 with no save is very fragile, even with strong Magic Resistance.

Ok, now what if I put some sort of magic resistance on her? I was thinking of also giving her tome so she could guaranteed get soulstealer and try to build up massive amounts of wounds while running all my COK right at the enemies face. Otherwise with what I'm running I think I'd have to put her on a CO!

Since Shades are Scouts, they get deployed after characters eve if you decide they should go I your deployment zone. As a result she normally can't start in a unit of Shades anyway (unless the scenario says no Scouting).
