Heaven and Earth
Rabbi Seltzer is saying what is written in Mesilas Yeshorim. Rabbi Maanis who say's Hashem "needs" it I believe he means to say that Hasem "wants -desires" it "" what the Alter Rebbe says

This is a typical misnageds understanding in Torah and mitzvos and it's not easy to redirect them al Pi chassidus.

As Rabbi Friedman stresses many times, he means "needs" and not "wants".
The Alter Rebbe indeed says "wants" and is very specific that he does not mean "needs". But Rabbi Freidman has a different shito.

Rabbi Friedman can't have a different shito than the Alter Rebbe. I believe Rabbi Friedman means to say that because hashem wants/desires therefore he needs.
I highlight this point because Rabbi Seltzer didn't get it when Rabbi Friedman says that Hashem NEEDS.

To # 2 7 and 8
Hashem NEEDS you for what he wants, (for his will). And without YOU, he dosen't get what he wants.

( PS. better language, instead of,what he wants, WHO he wants).

If you want to go a little deeper:
By human beings our will is separated from ourselves,(and separated from our needs). By hashem his will is part of him, (and so is his needs), so essentially his will is a need.
