I know that Black Orcs can decide what weapons they'll use at the beggining of the combat round. If they take shields can they use 2 choppas, or great weapons still if they so choose?

Or are they limited to the shiled and hand weapon if you buy them the shield. I assume if you can buy them a shield and take great weapons and double choppas that there is no armor save bonus.

They can choose not to use their shields in combat, so they can use their second choppa or Great Weapon.

They can choose what combination to use at the beginning of each combat (not each round obviously). So they´ll benefit improved armour against arrows for example if they wear shield, but they won´t benefit from it anymore if they decide to combat with great weapons or 2 choppas. At the end of the combat they benefit again from the shield bonus...and so on.

Indeed. Buying shields gives you a third option to pick for close combat: 2 choppa's, great axe, choppa&shield.

Note that any wielder of a great axe who can also have a shield has this option. Either use the great axe or your hand weapon and shield (any model has a hand weapon).
