I hope someone can help me with the following:

I wanted to buy bitcoincash with my bitcoins. For that I used the current bch send adress and coppied that in the send box in my jaxx bitcoin wallet. I did not recieve anything in my bch wallet and a friend just told me it went wrong because I used the bch send adress. Is there a way to get it back?

The send adress for bch still active in my jaxx wallet
 Blockchain info says transaction is recieved but I cant see anything in my bch wallet.

BTC and BCH are different networks/blockchains. If you sent BTC to a BCH address (or the other way around), it's lost forever.

(Unless the BCH address was created prior to the BTC->BTC/BCH split, and the recipient still controls the same address on both networks. But even then, you may have a hard time convincing them to return the payment.)

You DO now that Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash are two completely different currencies, right?
You can't send BTC to a BCH address and vice versa... you have exchange your BTC on a marketplace for BCH...

Now.. to get access to your wrongly sent BTC you can export the private keys of your recieving-BCH-address
and import it into another BTC wallet. You will be able to spend them from there on.
There are quite a few tutorials online to export your keys from JAXX and to import them keys into another wallet, just google it.

Nonsense.

Same private-/public- keypairs, same transaction history until block 4xx.xxx.
Of course you can recover wrongly sent BTC's, with easily importing the BCH private key into your BTC wallet...
