The article mention something rather interesting. That the seven Chinese ships had AEGIS radar systems. How did they get Aegis radar systems?

Probably via Korea. Easier to spy on the Koreans - and they use it.

Wikipedia (I know) does suggest that the Chinese use it as a generic name like Hoover, and that theirs doesn't have the same data sharing capabilities.

Its interesting because Lockheed Martin and RCA hold the patents for that radar and the ROKN have that type of radar on three of their ships.Informally, the Chinese navy and media refer to their phased-array radar air-defense destroyers as Aegis destroyers as you alluded to.
