it could be more powerful if you use this card "Mass Immigration" that reduce the pop cost for military immigrant units

Hello Rampo, I agree that fully updated, including with Catholic technologies the Maronite Rifleman become stronger than the Paraguayan skirmisher, however, I do to this analysis.
1 - The Paraguayan skirmisher is very good, the best skirmisher of the Latin-Americans.
2 - Paraguay, like Argentina, does not have a good heavy infantry, so I believe that immigrants should be used to fill these gaps.

I don't understand something in this discussion: you are talking like you have plenty of shipments to ship these units. I always prefer to ship all the upgrades I have in a deck (early game these are not send, so I have to do them later) before wasting these on shipping a few slightly stronger units. It's not that that late in a game a few units will make the difference; that's even my main issue with the immigrants: I only use them late game for a few improvements, and that's it. Most of these improvements are even never researched as they are worth nothing at that point in the game (like less tech research time; who needs that late game?; or crates).

IMO the immigrants are cool, but the cost is inappropriate. Why not: choosing a faction costs 2 shipments. The TC spawns a few immigrants that will help you. The techs continue to cost shipments. But the immigrants can slowly be created (with gold?) one by one (they have a build limit I believe, so that will hinder you from making dozens of them). The units function more like mercenaries, but are capped and again created slowly. Advancing in age and the big button still cost shipments.
When you research techs, the train time (and maybe a little bit of the cost) of both will lower.

I understand that you may find it useless to explore the use of immigrants. But remember most enhancement cards are available until age III. So in Ages IV and V, instead of sending military units that you already have in your army, I prefer to train units that supply shortages that this army has.
Immigrants really are not suitable for players who use the rush, aliases, Latin-Americans are not good for this strategy.

It would be nice if there would be a guide with the description of every technology that every immigrant has. 

Now I think Polish are the most suitable for Argentines but make sure you also selected Catholicism, because Polish also benefit Catholic technologies.

Japanese and German immigrants are great as well, so every civ that has them available should use them. Germans can ship 2 factories so they can boom a lot of resources and they also make villagers tougher and cheaper, plus cheaper Trading Posts and native units. Japanese can unlock all mining technologies so you can get coin faster and they can give you +100% HP to your explorers and Forts.

For me there are, as far I experienced the Colombian, two ways to go.

If I am playing rush I would choose the Urkain because then you can upgrade your cav with a 40 % HP boost which helps you a lot, because nearly every inf unit is a heavy inf, so you need this option with the cav to take good traits. And so you can do a lot better.

For the second way I take the Irish, but I would only pick them in a team game (2vs2,3vs3,4vs4) or in a treaty game because you need 2 Shipments and a litlle bit of time. ( to collect enough gold)
So the plan is, that you send in Age 3 nearly 50 vills to gold plantation and take the extra 30 % upgrade and then use the ability that all gold is switched to wood. So you can upgrade you units. This would I do because it is hard so gain enough gold and wood and also produce troops with 50 vills. In that way you can handle that problem (I struggled with that).

Other opinions?

in fact I always choose Catholicism when possible, since it is the religion that offers the maximum of technologies to increase the gather rates of the villagers,besides, I am a Catholic, so it is very cool to be able to choose my religion in the game.

As I said in an earlier post the Boom is the best way to use Latinos, this way, at least in my opinion. Starting from this assumption I choose the ones for the Colombians the Irish immigrants. Because? Because they offer an interesting opportunity to hire mercenaries in a sallon, they can expand their limit of warships (+1 monitor always helps) and finally has a great skirmisher (cheaper than the Independentista, occupy less population space, has reach greater, well the Independist one only gains in the power of fire) and a strong cavalry that is better that the Colombian cavalry, since this civ is oriented to have a strong infantry
