GM lock on:
First a tank needs to be inside the rectangle in the middle of your screen. Then u do:
Mouse-users: right mouse button
Keyboard-users: i
how to cloak
Don't know if i understand your question-intension correctly:
If you have the cloak-flag, then your tank is invisible for your opponents, except on their radar. So it's more difficult to hit you.
And Laser can't hit cloak!

Informations about flags:
http://my.bzflag.org/w/Flag_List
(But much informations still miss there or are even wrong...and i need to admit that i.e. the description there about GM and CL isn't complete and isn't optimal for noobs. I personally wouldn't even understand the term "out-the-window", if i wouldn't know already Cloak)

Many other helpful pages:
