Delusions of grandeur. Some things never change.

Yes. China was not originally the size it currently is, and most of East Asia was at one time or another Chinese suzereigns.

To simply be ruled by an emperor is not usually considered "imperialism", I think there are other candidates for that, perhaps not ruled by an emperor.

Also the first "Chinese" emperor, apparently, comes to the scene rather late, after the first "Persian" one for instance.
The short answer is yes; China, as we understand it today, was originally made up of seven "Warring States." I will also point that the language most people think of as "Chinese" is properly called Mandarin and it is the most commonly spoken language but hardly the only one. And, yes you could argue that China practically invented imperialism.
