Was not Ali (a.s) a friend of Prophet (pbuh) before Ghadir Khum that Prophet (pbuH) had to arrange a big gathering to announce it in a very hot afternoon? So much so people were traveling back to home and were tired. Ali (a.s) was nafs-e-nabi (pbuh) and brother of Nabi (pbuh) why Prophet (pbuh) needed to announce his friendship in a large gathering? Common sense attracts it?

That is a misconception. Please see this article for the most correct meaning of Mawla that also fits with the context:
