pvc to terra cotta

I am in the process of remodeling my basement bathroom. New shower and moving the toilet.

after cutting up the floor and running new pvc pipe, I am forced to splicing the pvc into the old existing terra cotta.

I was just intending to use a 3" rubber sleeve w/ clamps. However, after cleaning up the junction (and remaining concrete), I am left with the fat end of the existing terra cotta (the end where the pipe slides into). I don't have the option of cutting up any more pipe (the pipe goes under the wall and into the sewer).

I am wondering if there is a way I can do this to avoid leaks (and smells)?

is there a rubber sleeve that has an internal clamp that expands, or am I dreaming?

also, should I put a toilet flange on before pouring the fresh concrete, or only leave the pipe sticking out of the floor and using a flat flange with rubber o-ring type seal (and attach to to the floor with tapcons or something)??
