That if scratched it wouldn't expose the aluminium. And as soon as its exposed the galvanic corrosion would set in.
Just don't send like a good idea to me. At all. Buy a stainless pot and be done with it.

pretty much all you need is salt, vinegar a bit of copper and a 3V power supply and you can try plating SS
done right the copper will stick to the SS very well and by sticking i mean like "solder to copper" (done well).
the process takes time for a DIY system and some stronger acids can help get it working better (hydrochloric / mutric acid)
i don't no about ally / copper plating but don't know why you would want to bother with it. it would be a waste of time i reckon.
