We are a family of 4 travelling to US for 1wk (all of us are koodo customers).   Do we all need to buy an add-on if we will be only texting each other?  Or are the add-ons only if we will be texting someone back in Canada?  Also, if I purchase an add-on, do I still keep the phone on airplane mode when I cross the border?

You will each need add ons to send texts to each other for free. Incoming texts are free regardless of what add on you have.
As soon as you cross over the border you will be charged roaming rates, regardless of where you are texting to.
As well, you will need to have your phone off of airplane mode in order to use it. I would suggest turning data off though.
