    samething is missing on the position ,The black King can scape from g4 the 2 pawns will be a solution or a white Knight on h6 controling g4 and f5. We need a pawn on a6  because If the King move to a6 insted a8 will be mate in 11.

    We can't put a pawn on a6 because there are already 8 black pawns on the board. Besides, it's OK that there is a variation that is a move shorter.

    7...Nxc5 is illegal. It's double check.

    No bro. Pa6 is not needed. It doesn't matter that there is a short variation.
