With a heavy suffix it should be stressed אֲבִיכֶם [avi'khem]

AviKHEM, and not AVIkhen

Correct, but that would be turning the already-formal into so-formal-that-few-native-speakers-know-it...

I can clearly hear the הוּא. What do you hear instead?

Why is it not אבאיכם


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IngeborgHa14

Well, אַ֫בָּא dad has no suffixed forms of its own, you suffix אָב father instead.

Can I say אוה את האבא שלך?

No, in nominal sentences of the type A = B you do not use אֶת.
