Yes, a Skink Chief can join Chameleons. That does however not allow him to scout.

He could join them, but they wouldn't be able to scout. Only if the hero can scout as well, can he join a scouting unit.

Technically, only if the hero can scout, can the unit he joins deploy as scouts. He can join them all day long, but they can't deploy as scout in that case.

BRB pg. 100, 'SPECIAL RULES': Unless other wise noted in the text of the rules itself, a special rules applying to a character does not apply to a unit and vice versa. (...) you couldn't learn to shoot a longbow by standing next to someone who could, so why would you become able to (...) deploy as a Scout, (...)?"

As the Scout special rule makes no mention of it, and the above rule expressly mentions Scouts, it is to be assumed that the above rule applies to them.
