The only way to run a Chaos knight and still get house benefits is to run a Super Heavy Detatchment, not the aux one, the regular one. Requiring 3 LoW.

If you souped in a knight to the supreme command, you'd lose Legion traits and House traits.

Unfortunately correct. The good news is you still get a household so the main thing you lose is the ambition and character status which you can buy back.

Now if CK at least had heretic astartes keyword it would be different.
