Your friend's only course of action is to apply for a new passport (or perhaps another emergency travel document) at the High Commission or a consulate of Pakistan. If it takes too long for your friend's travel plans, there is not much to be done. Renewal shouldn't take that long. According to the website of the High Commission, regular applications are ...

If you want to avoid going through Russia, that's a unique challenge. You can try the Turkey-Iran-Pakistan-India route as described https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Istanbul_to_New_Delhi_over_land here.

Unfortunately you cannot. In order to obtain a visa to Pakistan from a country to which you do not hold citizenship, you need to have a permanent resident status; in other words - if you are in China, Vietnam or Cambodia on a visitor/tourist visa - you cannot apply for a visa to Pakistan. This is stated plainly at the Embassy of Pakistan in China's ...
