Why can't you aerate after pitching?

You can aerate right after pitching, but like chumpsteak said, the 02 is only used by the yeast for the very early stages and it is not good to induce 02 into your beer beyond that point, so you shouldn't be shaking it up once the yeast have had their opportunity to start reproducing.

Now my airlock is not bubbling and there is just a small rim of bubbles on the outside, otherwise it looks "flat". See pic. Is this bad?

Looks good to me. The majority of the fermentation is likely complete, but it will "Flatten" out over time as you don't have much pressure (like a cap) to keep it from escaping. Give it it's time to finish and clean up and you'll have a fine beer!

Yep, fermentation is slowing down and so is the production of co2 which creates less pressure to escape through the airlock and it stops bubbling.
