1. can you sub green jackfruit in water for young jackfruit in brine? i can only get young jackfruit in brine at an asian store in a bigger city but i saw green jackfruit in water at a regular grocery store today.

2. what would you sub for sherry vinegar? red wine vinegar?

According to foodsubs.com, substitutes for sherry vinegar are balsamic vinegar OR red wine vinegar (Also add a little sugar if you wish.) OR rice vinegar.

Yeah, you totally can! Just rinse off the jackfruit with the brine. I actually prefer the brine kind...its a little more flavorful.

the brine one is the one that is harder to find. i can find the green one in water easier.

I have sherry vinegar and I'd say that red wine vinegar is a much better substitute than balsamico with its pretty distinctive and unique flavour profile. Both the sherry and red wine vinegar have strongly flavoured, already fermented bases so that makes them kind of similar.
Maaaybe you could add a few drops of balsamico to the red wine vinegar for added depth but I'd say it is just fine without.

Mild vinegars like apple cider are not assertive enough, I think.
