Yes, perfectly normal to fly back from an international destination to declare PR, that is how most outland people do it. Read here

Yes, you can do that as long as your COPR is valid (not expired).

Rubbish! You can do either, entirely up to you.

If you have not yet landed, you can fly, swim, take a bus, train, or commercial camel transport with a COPR. You will land once you get to the POE.

If you have already landed, you cannot use your COPR to take commercial transport to Canada. You will need your PR card (or a PR Travel Document)

They were probably mentioning traveling to Canada after landing (becoming PR). You do need a PR card to do that in a commercial carrier such airline. But returning to Canada at land border in a private vehicle, you only need COPR.

So it means i can travel with immigrant visa and do my landing when coming back at airport
