What types of elements are useful for dating materials?

Radioactive elements are used to date the age of rocks. Radioactive elements decay according to a known pattern. Scientists can use the elements of that pattern to determine when the rock with the original radioactive element was formed.

Is it true that radioactive decay results in the fusion of stable nuclei along with the emission of multiple types of radiation?

No. Fusion is the combining of light elements into heavier elements (like 2 deuterium into 1 helium). radioactive decay is when you have an unstable atom releasing energy (and sometimes matter) in order to reach a more stable state.

Difference between a non-radioactive substance and a radioactive substance?

Radioactive elements are unstable and will decay into other elements in a decay chain. Non-radioactive elements are stable and won't commence into radioactive decay. Radioactive elements can be found from atomic number 84 onwards.
