Hello,
I have really big problems with my I9500 basically, everything is not working. From the day I got it, I couldnt do anything (reinstalling firmware), now I can REACH recovery mode - finally. But thing is I have no idea what kind of firmware it is installed there, because If I want to instal SuperSU - I can't, towelroot does not root my phone either, when I enter recovery and try to install from SD card newest official firmware I received Installation Aborted. Odin does not work either, Kies - nope. Please, there must be something that could help me to solve this.

You need to be in download mode for this to work.

No download mode is something completely different.

You should read this thread first.

you must reinstall a stock rom with odin.
For this you need to access Download mode by pressing the down+home+power buttons.

If you don't have download mode then you have a fake i9500.

Is it possible to check by IMEI?
Yep, it's fake.
