From what I heard of the video, when Long Lehao said "about 2030" he was talking about two CZ-5DY launches, CZ-9 was not mentioned for that date.

Initial Chinese lunar landing will involve the use of two LM-5 rockets.

If you mean CZ-5DY aka 921, then yes. Certainly not any variant of current CZ-5.

Beside, I highly doubt the eventual designation of CZ-5DY is anything like CZ-5X. DY is just a temporary name given by Long Lehao, in his own word "I call it DY". CZ-5DY only shares the 5m fuselage technology and YF-100 engine from the CZ-5 program (including CZ-6, 7, 8), other than that it is very different. It deserves a separate number series equally as 6,7,8.
