as mentionned in the description.html, i.landsat.acca work with reflectance
and temperature, so you have to use i.landsat.toar before i.landsat.acca

how do the i.landsat.acca, i.landsat.dehaze, and i.landsat.toar addon

i.lansdat.dehaze make just a "light" athmospheric correction
i.attcorr do atmospheric correction using the 6S algorythm wich is much more
efficient, but need some extra parameters, and also work with several type
of capters
so you have to use i.landsat.dehaze OR i.attcorr

i.landsat.toar convert DN to radiance/reflectance and temparature
i.landsat.acca compute a cloud mask

also the acca man page does not really explain what benefit the 2-pass

i think you can find all the explanations you can need about the way it's
working on the dedicated paper:
Irish R.R., Barker J.L., Goward S.N., and Arvidson T., 2006.
Characterization of the Landsat-7 ETM+ Automated Cloud-Cover Assessment
(ACCA) Algorithm. Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing vol.
