I'm trying to use Aardvark's bobcut Kasumi but when I move/rotate her, this happens: Help me out here! D:

Looks like the head bone isn't parented to the neck. Either select the head before you move the pelvis or use an IK rig.

Enlighten me with the subject, please. EDIT: Nevermind, I found it. :)

Right, I found the rig but now I don't know how to pose with them. Take the legs as an example: I can rotate the ankles without problems but the knees won't budge and the rotating sphere is in a weird place. (I'll upload some pictures tomorrow 'cause I'm lazy and I don't want to start my pc.)

You're not supposed to rotate the knees manually. That's how IK rigs are supposed to work. The pelvis and feet are the parts you're supposed to move. The position of the knees is calculated automatically. The knees' "rotating sphere" as you call it, is only meant to control the direction the knee will point towards. Rotating that sphere will not rotate the knee, but when you move that sphere left or right, you see the knee will move to be pointed at it. The same applies to elbows. tl;dr: u r dumb
