May I have permission to jump out of c130 at 65,000ft with your mod?

Another permission request: Since this version has not been updated in quite some time, I am working on a refactor where most of it is copy/paste with modification to support better item storage (I.E. 1 combined array for all items) as well as supporting the storage of variables (previously breaks items like the ACE Gunbag). Looking for permission to continue development for either a public release or limited release to my arma 3 group depending on your leniency. The refactor is up on my github (same username) if you want to have a look at what I am doing. I don't want to just steal your mod but fix a few of the issues while also making it easier to develop via ACE / CBA macros and less convoluted public variables.

Only via script, but there is no implemention in the command menu or so. But if you want to, you could easily add an ACE interaction to AI teammates.

Is there a way to force your AI teammates to put their backpack on their chest/back?
Thank you for a great mod!

Sorry, but this mod does NOT support the ACE arsenal.

I found what seems to me to be a mistake, I put both backpacks on the character and saved in the ACE arsenal, but when I carry the front backpack in the scenery editor, there is no solution for this? (sorry if the text is strange, I'm using the goolge translator)

Nope there is no Button in the Eden Editor arsenal. I guess your best option would be this editor module. See:
