I did a research of an item and it says that i am now allowed to pick up and use an aliens weapon in a figt, how do i do that? And does my soldier keep it after the fight?

I believe that just applies if you stun the alien since the weapons seems to be destroyed the moment you kill the aliens. I´ve yet to see any recovered weapon, that i know of, and probably wont since i finished the game after completing it.

The only way to get intact alien weapons is to stun them. Despite the wording in the research there is no way to actually pick up a weapon mid-mission - you need to complete it and return to base to change any soldier equipment.
