In the vid Weather was so cloudy . MANPAD shooter should see the target and take aim like rifle.
Not exactly. Aiming could be relying on vibration signal from missile's IR seeker.
Noise of helicopter also could be helpful to identify and track.

The notion that everything China has is available to Pakistan is wrong for example Chinese Armed forces have 1500+ Km airlaunch cruise missile with a very efficient engine, but we are not even near to 1000 Km mark.

As per rumors during the initial days of cruise missile program we imported [or we can say smuggled] few batches of turbojet engines from an unknown east european country via black market agents in Dubai, but those engines were not very efficient therefore maximum range of our cruise missiles were limited during the initial day the longest range cruise missile we had during those days was a basic version of Babur-I with 500 Km maximum range, while air launch version RAAD was limited to 350 KM range.

Now coming to present days one first need to know that Pakistan has following versions of different Cruise missiles

- Babur-I GLCM 500 KM range [link from 2005]
- Babur-IA GLCM 600 KM and then 700 KM version, capable to hit land targets only [link from-2006] [Link-1, link-2]
- Babur-IB GLCM 700 Km range capable to hit both land and sea targets [link]
- Babur-II GLCM +750 KM range improvements in guidance [Link, Link-2]
- Babur-III SLCM 450 KM range [official link] [link]
- Raad-I ALCM, 350 Km range, for land and sea targets [official links: 2008, 2012]
- Raad-II ALCM with 600 Km range [official link]
- Harba Ship Launch version of Babur-II [official link]

Now if you observe the timeline we successfully manage to produce 8-9 different version of cruise missiles in last 20+ years with varying range here you need to keep in mind that we initiated our program during or after 1998, this thing alone indicate slow but natural progression of cruise missile program which is not possible with the dependency on imported subsystems.
