Hi! I built my PC a year and a half ago, I picked up a Ryzen CPU and because I was told that it runs better when paired with faster memory (+ budget concerns) I decided to pick up a single 8 gig 3000mhz RAM stick, this one - https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX430C15PB3_8.pdf with the hopes of getting one more in the near future.

I wasn't able to do that until now, but it turns out none of my local stores have that particular RAM stick in stock anymore (can't order from places like Amazon because more often than not they don't ship to my country), so instead I was offered this stick https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX430C15FB3A_8.pdf . Despite it being from a different line (Fury, not Predator) I noticed that it pretty much has the same specs.

So, I am wondering would it be fine for me to get this one and would I be able to run the two sticks in dual channel, or should I just wait until my current stick reappears in stores? Thanks :)

This question is asked a lot...and the bottom line is...you have to try them to know for sure. Although, if it were me, and I couldn't fins a matching stick, I would do what you're proposing because I've generally had good luck mixing sticks.
