Use Play Store link in App info 1.0 from qwerty12 instead of ViewInPlay 1.0.8.

That's the one I was using previously. That gives the play store link only in the app info page. ViewInPlay creates a link in Notification shade and recent apps screen too. I have disabled it in the notification shade so that the PinNotif can work.

Me too, but I returned to it from ViewInPlay, because Play Store link in App info works without any problem and it has much smaller footprint than ViewInPlay.

I use Play Store link in App info and have App Info link in both places too.

Simply outstanding work! This is the fourth GermainZ Xposed module that has earned a permanent place on my phone (out of only 11 total that have earned such distinction).

SUGGESTION: Revise the OP to state something like:
“This will not prevent notifications from being cleared by the application when you click on them. It simply prevents them from being cleared when you click 'clear all'."

WHY DO I SUGGEST THAT:
The average non-sophisticated user (like me), relates the word “pinned” to things like pinning an app to status bar in windows or pinning a post to the top of a forum....or even in the old days pinning a paper note on a corkboard. In all those cases, it stays pinned there until you deliberately unpin it. You have explained several times in the thread already why that’s not the case for notifications, but I’ll bet you’ll be answering that same question again and again if you don’t put it in the op. I read where you said "to prevent accidentally clearing", but that didn't tell the whole story for a simple minded person like me who expected it to remain pinned until deliberately unpinned.

Thanks again for all your great modules.

This will not prevent notifications from being cleared by the application when you open them, and the application can still control the notification at any time (including clearing it). It simply prevents them from being cleared when you tap the "clear all" button or when you try to swipe them away.

How about setting toe priority of notifs?
This module can pin them but not make them the top of lists of notif panel.
(ongoing notifs goes there usually as we know)

Default Custom ROMs

@GermainZ
Can you change adding method?
Because I like Pinned Notifications, but I more like ROMs features....

No, I don't see any other method that doesn't make it overly complicated.
