No, you could send a friend invite to someone you admire on youtube or that you know in real life. IT doesn't matter.

The difference between a friend invite and a subscriber is that you won't get updates from your friend when they post new videos and you also won't count towards their subscriber total. This can be used to gain youtube partnership. The friend acceptance just shows your friends on youtube and makes it easier to send messages to the person.
