The rules say that in many types of terrain only one rank of a unit shoots. IF a unit equiped with Bw is charged in a forest for example does it get rear support shooting in the impact phase?

Yes, the rear rank supports during the impact phase. Rear missile support durring impact is considered "as impact (i.e. melee)" and not shooting. However if the combat is in the terrain (say a wood) then -1 POA for shooting in impact phase and -1 POA for target in cover is going to hurt.

Also mixed bow formation can shoot because the rear rank is considered shooting from the front ranks position. If you have mixed bow formation then taking up a position at the EDGE of cover can help you out shoot all bow formations.
