I cant speak for Deka and how they are implementing theirs, but from what I've heard from others, the RWR warning (at least for an active missile) is by a range from target. So once the missile passes within a certain range (generally whatever range the missile would go pitbull), the RWR on the target aircraft will get a warning. It is dependent on the range, and not the actual active state of the missile.

That's what I've been told about how its coded, and I haven't personally tested, but from game play it seems correct, but I've never isolated the variable specifically.

Question, will the datalink on JF-17 communicate between aircraft to aircraft without the need for a ground station or airborne EWR? Or will it still need some form of AI to relay the information on datalink?

Group based A2A datalink do not need any relay, it's ad-hoc or Point-to-Point.

JF-17 have 2 radios.
radio1: voice mode only, contact TOWER/AWACS/TANKER etc;
radio2: voice mode for radio1 failover, and datalink mode

datalink network is identified by unique channel number,
radio2 datalink mode is enabled automatically by setting special channel number,
for example,
channel 199: LINK-16;
channel 198: AWACS/GCI;

Does that mean the JF-17 will have the choice of using a link 16 network, or connecting to A-50 and ground search radar stations?
