Just to confirm BL stands for Blimped, correct? And if so are all BL's sound sync? Thanks

That's right. All Arri 35mm and 16mm cameras with a "BL" in their name are selfblimped. But beware: a 16BL for example is rather loud by modern standards!

also to be noted:

16bl's and 35bl series I and II need a lens blimp in order to be sync sound compatible.
35 bl series III, IV, IVs and evolution don't do so.

Are there lens blimps for PL mount lenses that fit the 35 BL I and II's?

... an optical glass will help a lot as most of the noise comes through the lens...
