Well I guess it is useful for those cases, especially since Manectric doesn't have many options to pick from. I wouldn't call it absolutely essential
for Manectric to carry a fire move since the team at least has Scizor to deal with those threats (and even with Flamethrower, Hail teams are probably going to have the opportunity to do nasty things to you anyway), but having said that I suppose it wouldn't hurt to have Flamethrower as insurance (hax sux) and Flamethrower could probably deal with Hail teams that lead with Abomasnow nicely.

Do you have any ideas for the last team member? I kinda want something that can boost its stats to take on Bulky Pokemon of need be.
My team used Rotom-W instead of Cloyster. It worked ok, but I was very weak to dragons even with Latios (it can't switch in to dragon moves). If you want a booster that can take on other bulky booster, you could try Suicune if you can get one. navy823 used that and got to 105 wins (it's on the list).
