I configured my iTerm using this tutorial:

But I have few problems with it, for example when I am in fullscreen mode and I press CMD + Tab to switch to Chrome and then I want to go back to iterm also using CMD + Tab nothing happens so I have to use my HotKey.

Second related thing is when I have opened iterm window and press in dockbar on iterm icon it opens new instance of iterm but I would like to activate last iterm window if it is any.

Is possible to achieve my goals?

CMD + Tab to the terminal, but before you release CMD, press and hold the Option key (also called the "alt"-key).

That is the OSX shortcut to unhide windows when you switch to them. (You can normally hide windows to the task bar with CMD + M)
