Yes, that is correct both the old p/n have been replaced with the two new p/n you have indicated.  The article states that if you have the old p/n, they should work okay.  The new p/n has several improvements for the newer engine controls.

Re: 317-7485 communicator adatpter 3 - CAT 3608 ADEM4

Last month, I ordered diagnostic tool group with P/N 466-6258 with Communication Adapter P/N 317-7485 included.

However our dealer said that the tool group has replaced P/N 466-6258 and P/N317-7485 to 538-5051 and 478-0235, respectively.

Is this information correct?

The 317-7485 communicator adatpter 3 will work on all Cat gas engines that are electronically controlled, including the G3600 A4.  On some of the later gas engine models, you can input limited information through the remote panel using the keypad or buttons.  However, in order to perform calibrations or setup procedures, you will need a laptop, the Comm Adapter 3 with connecting cables, and a copy of Electronic Technician (ET) installed on the laptop and licensed by a Cat dealer. The ET software will open but it will not fully perform without being licensed by Cat.  Cat ET will work on all Cat gas engines with electronic controls for communication to the engine ECM.

Re: 317-7485 communicator adatpter 3 - CAT 3608 ADEM4

but is the communicator adapter 3 for the ADEM4 useful or do I have to buy another model?

The comm adapter is the hardware interface between the engine ECM and a PC. You'll need to purchase a license and install Cat ET to be able to communicate with the ECM.
