can he get back the Quick Strike just played to declare him as attacker?

I don't see why not.As soon as you play a card, it is discarded.
No, that won't work. From p.9 of the rules:

"An event card is played from a player's hand, its text effects are resolved, and the card is then placed in its owner's discard pile." [emphasis mine]

So, you play Quick Strike, resolve its text (i.e., make an attack) and then discard Quick Strike. If Hama exhausts to make the Quick Strike attack, the opportunity to trigger his response effect will occur before Quick Strike is in the discard pile.

If you have two copies of Quick Strike, however, Hama can recycle them indefinitely (Play one, recur the other, etc.).
Works nicely with Legolas (Core) (or any other archer) and Hands Upon the Bow (SaF).
Hama obviously isn't one of the strongest character's ever, but he has a low starting threat for Tactics, and a very useful ability that will require a deck to be built around. Also, his attack ties for the highest. The Rohan trait has been slowly but steadily gaining traction, although nowhere near the dominance of dwarves yet. But back to that ability, Tactics has some great events, Feint in particular is a life-saver, and direct-damage cards like Hail of Stones are also handy, (especially paired with cards like Gondorian Spearman and Spear of the Citadel). I'd rate him as a 4-star hero, better than the average tactics hero.
