@thezanursic: As they cost 50 gas to be morphed from Zerglings and are melee, some players say they are less useful than Reapers. If you try them out please tell me what you think. As I said I'm willing to change things and make the mod more balanced.

ALPHA SQUADRON -Enables Dominion Holoboards: Holoboards can resocialize terran infantry, converting them permanently to the player. -Enables Immortality Protocol: This research allows Thors to be rebuild on the battlefield. It costs as much as a new Thor but is faster. -Enables ARES: This Warbot can morph into 3 different attack modes, but the anti-air mode must be researched. -Enables Valkyries: The anti-air ships from BW. -Enables Warfield (Hero): Warfield is a buffed Battlecruiser. Heroes can only be trained once.
COLONISTS -Colonists change the tech tree a lot, they are not recommended for new players. This is a work in progress as this faction is the weakest right now.
INFESTED -All structures become infested. All Barracks units can burrow (needs research). -Infested Marines replace marines. -Aberrations replace Marauders. Aberrations can be upgraded to use Deep Tunnel, which works like a Blink ability. -Enables Predators at the Factory. -Replaces Banshees with Infested Banshees, this unit attacks by launching Broodlings just like Broodlords. -Disables Ghosts and Academies. -Disables Orbital Commands. -Replaces Battlecruisers with Hercules.

RAYNOR RAIDERS -Supply Depots come from the Hyperion (SCV doesn't need to build it). -Enables Medics. -Enables Flamming Betty (built by Ravens). -Replaces Ghosts with Raiders. Raiders can use stimpack, penetrator rounds, and calldown Hyperion Strikes.
TOSH's PIRATES -Replaces Ghosts with Spectres. -Replaces Vikings with Wraiths. -Replaces Medivacs with Special Ops Dropships. -Enables Tosh (Hero).

I'm sorry, but that can't possibly ever be balanced.
You're right, they can never be worth it. They'll always be underpowered imo because of the lack of professional testing- right now, from the games I played with a friend, they're not worth getting because they kind of suck.

@Monitor: So it would be nice to give some feedback. If Raptors can't be tweaked to be worth it, they need to be removed. The leaping ability could be chamged and enabled by some other way, not as an option to Banelings.
But I'd like to give Zerg at least one unit that can jump cliffs. If not Raptors maybe Hunterlings.
