This one is for Agarici (but not only): which unit were these Luftwaffe soldiers of?

I must admit that in the matter of Luftwaffe units stationed in Cluj/Kolozsvar (probably at Someșeni airfield) I'm completely ignorant. Probably you should recommend some readings to me.

The only thing, as "clujean din naștere" (a lifetime inhabitant of Cluj) I think I recognized the facade (near the entrance) of Apáczai Csere János Elméleti Líceum on I.C. Brătianu Street (Király Utcá at the time) -
https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ap%C3%A1czai_...nos_liceum.JPG) - by then a college for girls I think.

So what Luftwaffe unit was that?

Thanks for identifying the building. It matches, I think.

As for Luftwaffe units that stationed in wartime Kolozsvár, here is what I found:
Stab u. Flakauswertezug/Flak-Rgt. 133 (Aug 44); I./Flak-Rgt. 231 with Flak Kolonne
(Aug 44); Schaltstelle d. Lw. (Aug 44); Kfz. Abschleppzug d. Lw. 2/VIII (Aug 44);
Eisenbahnmeldestelle d. Koflug 7/XII (Aug 44).

On the nearby airfield, the following Luftwaffe units stationed: Wetterberatungsstelle (Aug 44); Flugsicherungshauptstelle 34 (Aug 44); Ausbautrupp/Ln.-Ausbau-Kp. 5 (Aug 44); Landwehr-Gerätezug 22 from Koflug 7/XII (Aug 44).

Which one could these men belong to? Unfortunately, I don't have the answer.

Is the shorter guy wearing a different type of uniform? I've noticed the lighter shade (a different color?), the pocket in front of the trousers and the short boots. Could he be, for example, a paratrooper?

Yes, he is wearing a so-called 'Tropenuniform'. However, I cannot see any paratrooper insignia on his jacket.
