If you are using external animations (which are in a .pbo file) then you need to copy this file to your \arma\addons (or a mod folder). Restart ArmA in order to load the new addon and that's it.

The animations you play with either the switchMove or playMove commands. Sometimes these commands don't work when used in a units init line or a waypoint, I suggest you use a trigger for that.

OK I made you a quick example mission for your editor, you can grab it here

It contains 2 units from which one is the player and the other plays the animation. Note that the unit who plays the anim has a name added (doubleclick on it to check its properties). The blue circle is the trigger, it allows you to make the unit play the animation whenever you want (by pressing 0-0-0).
