What confuses me is that PAC announced commencement of serial production back in December... So what stage is this program in right now? Weapons qualification?

Serial production commences once specs are finalized. In three departments, the Blk 3 will triumph anything in PAFs current fighter fleet including the 52+. The ACMs excitement says a lot.

F-16s will still hold a kinematic edge of the JF-17s though.

Do we have official confirmation that they'll be integrating PL-15/PL-10?

Have we seen any head tracking gear for HMD integration? PL10 would be a bit wasted without HMD. With it, I don’t think the F16’s kinetic advantage will mean much in practical terms.
HMDS is there in the final config. We'll see it soon.

F16 has kinematics, range and payload going for it. Pl-15/ 10 combo got "E" designations once PAF showed interest. The post 27/9 missile shipment comprised of 15Es.
