etc

How do I find standard error of the predicted value?

The predicted value (y = 0.00067) is calculated using weights as well

as at the mean of the variables, except for one variable which is 0.

I found some commands that might be useful, but they did not accept weights.

Hans, you need to use -adjust- for this purpose. However -adjust- will not hold variables at their weighted means. Here is code that creates the weighted means and then calls -adjust-. If it is badly mangled in transmission to the list, I will send you a copy privately.
