Ninapanda is the same as Kupanda, but Ninapanda means "I climb/plant". Anapanda is like "he/she climbs/plants". I think Mimi ninapanda doesn't change the meaning of the sentence, but I can be wrong.

you're right, the mimi is optional. it can sometimes add emphasis, but it is correct with or without it (more common without, though).
