    "软柿子" means weakness person. For example:
    对有些人,你的态度要强硬一些,否则他会以为你是只软柿子,以后会经常欺负你。

    As a Chinese, I have never heard of "吮吸者".

    We do have the expression of "软柿子".
    When we call someone "软柿子". It means this person is in a weak position and others like to bully him.
    For example: 别欺负我,我可不是什么软柿子。

    As for sucker, sorry I can't find a slang for it. Simply we would say "容易上当的笨蛋" or "笨蛋" for this kind of person.

    give someone credit
    I am not sure if you mean forgive someone. Cause credit has many meanings. And if you mean forgive him this time or .go easy on him. You can say "放他一马".

    软柿子 someon who is too mild to gives other person bullying him.
    sucker in chinese you can use "笨蛋"
    give somebody credit "放你一马“
