Being requested by one of my clients, I would like to refer a freelancer to him to hire.  The freelancer has already created an account at Upwork but the profile is not approved yet due to market-demand skills issue.

Can I still refer the freelancer to the client? If yes, would there be any issues with payment?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, the client could request him under "bring my own freelancer" - but the freelancer could then only (!) work with that one client and frankly it would be easier for the client to grab one of the endless number of freelancers already on the site rather than making the client jump through hoops to hire someone Upwork has already rejected.
