stem looks like a cherry?

Weeping trees are grafted. The rootstock is not a weeping tree. If shoots come from below the graft they will not be weeping and will also be much stronger growing than the weeping ones. They will win and the weeping branches will be overcome. Looks like that's what's happened here

it's unlikely to be the cause of problems.

I can't see what your tree is. The leaves I can see don't look sick. Have you a photo of the ones that look bad

Elephant Hawkmoth caterpillars like willowherbs

Can anyone identify this?

It's a Viburnum, one of the winter flowering ones. Best pruned by removing some of the older stems completely and leaving the rest alone.

It does make a few flowers at other times but mainly in winter.

resist the temptation to just shorten all the branches. you'll end up with a shapeless lump of not much
