Good news everyone! I managed to enable 5G connectivity for my Pixel 5 in Finland. Thanks again to @cstark27 for hinting me to the right direction.
1. First you need to get your phone to show up in QPST. This is done similarly to Pixel 4 XL and you can find the the steps to do so here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=83499679&postcount=75
2. Once you have installed QPST open EFS tool. If you have followed the steps in the previous step and have the right drivers installed your phone shows up here. Now you need to navigate to the carrier policy file. More details here: https://mt-tech.fi/en/modify-oneplus-7-pro-5g-8-and-8-pro-nr-lte-a-band-combos/
3. PLEASE remember to backup the original file! Pixel 5's file is different from the OnePlus example linked above. I simply added 5G to every rat_capability field, saved the file and then replaced the original file with the modified one. As usual, you have all the responsibility of your device and its modifications.
Now that 5G is working, all that's left is to find a way to enable VoLTE. Replacing MBN files has worked in other devices so perhaps it could be the solution here as well.
