Use the offline downloader to download the Cluster, this will geenrate all metadata required by BL.
Then create the catalog and point to the cluster.
It is also possible to use a custom cluster.

How about editing pdo.conf in /etc/patch and take server into Single user mode and install patches. Will zones get patched?
Theoritically It should work !
The BBSA PAtching feature uses the native patch utility "patchadd" for adding the patches.
I have never used this myself.

If I'm not misstaken, the original consern here is that the patches were not isntalled in the "correct order", but in the order in which they appear in patchdiag.xref..
This is fine, and the only time you should see that the order in blpackage is different is if we are trying to install the dependent patch first, so that we do not fail with dependency issues.
You do not need to edit each patch individually to provide the SUM override. You can make these changes in the new patchdiag.xref file (only include the line of patches which you wish to override) and feed this file into the Catalog. For more info review User Guide / hot to override patchdiag.xref in the Catalog.
