Is the pronunciation for "adre" right? (With accent on the first syllable and short "e".)

I would have expected "adré".

Yes that is the correct pronunciation but in the north you will often hear "adra" or somtimes written and spoken you will the the traditional "Adref" so same pronunciations just with a "v" sound at the end.

I wonder if adre is a cognate with "address".

No. adre comes from tua thref ('towards home'), which is a form sometimes still heard in south-east Wales as 'sha thre'.
