Fairly experienced player, still I have questions from time to time.. Here are some of them!
Question 1: Siege & Combat
Situation: Hannibal + 10 CUs sits in Capua. Longus +1 CU sits in Rome.
Hannibal plays a card, and moves into Rome.
If Longus elects to fight (and loses), may Hannibal siege Rome, immediately after the battle?
I assume 'no, but can't find this in 2nd ed rules. Can someone point me out where this is clarified?
Question 2: Adriatic Pirates
Hannibal sits with 4 CUs in Bruttium.
Marcellus sits with 10 CUs in Heraclea.
Hannibal plays Adriatic Pirates, to move into Croton, and then further, by boat, out of Italy.
Now, may Hannibal move 4 CUs to Croton, leave one CU there, and then move with 3 CUs, by Naval Movement...?
The Adriatic Pirate card says: "If you use this card as an OC for SeaMovement and carry no more than 3CUs plus a General, you do not have to roll on the Naval Combat Table , if you embark/debark at either Brundusium/Croton or Tarentum"
It says that you cant CARRY more than 3CUs + a general, but perhaps you can move a 1st step of your movement (before seamovent) with more than 3 CUs?
A bit of rules lawyering of course

Question 1: You are correct in thinking that the answer is "No." I had the same wondering here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1998936
And a nice clear answer spelled it out with rule section cites:
10.2 spells it out clearly.
7. The Army can now conduct one of the following: either a siege/subjugation or a battle however an Army may never conduct a battle and then a siege or subjugation on the play of a single Strategy Card.
10.11 then talks about how 2 Generals can do so using a Campaign card.
Question 2: The move seems fine to me, as you are not carrying more that 3 on the Sea Movement leg of the move. Don't know if anyone would disagree, or if there is an official ruling.

Aaron is absolutely correct.
