It notes that it can transport Infantry and Drone Models, and specifically XV8 Battlesuits. It does NOT have the language that the devilfish has stating it cannot transport battlesuits.
Stealthsuits have both the infantry and the battlesuit keywords. They cannot be transported in a Devilfish because the Devilfish says "no battlesuits." Since the Orca says "can transport infantry" and doesn't say "no battlesuits", It looks to me like you can put stealth suits in an Orca.
An Orca clocks at a bit more of 370p. It can carry 65 infantry models, and as only XV8s take double space, you'd be able to carry 21 MSU Stealth Suits units, or 10 full sized ones (not counting drones).
Now, its text has an interesting conundrum. It says '(...) can transport up to 65 T'au Empire infantry units, including drones (...)'; does it say it may transport only infantry and their drones or infantry and drones? The latter would let Orcas transport stuff like Remoras (lol). Sadly, not Sensor Towers and Sentry Turrets, as they're immobile and wouldn't be able to leave the Orca
