How did it re align itself with China without the USSR getting involved?

Nobody in Albania requested Soviet intervention (unlike in Hungary in 1956 or Czechoslovakia in 1968), so the USSR did not intervene when Albania stopped supporting the Warsaw Pact in 1961. That seems to me the only reason.

Who asked for intervention in both of the above cases?

various members of the Communist Parties there as well as people who genuinly did not like what the governments were doing. In the Hungarian revolt, which was a revolt of anti-revisionists against the revisionists in the CPSU that got hijacked by nationalists, fascists, and capitalists, many people defended the capital and the current so called "Socialist" ruling party in Hungary built some sort of memorial I was reading.

The USSR got involved in many ways. From decreasing aid and trade, to stirring up cultural and national problems (via ethnic Greeks in Albania), to trying to starve Albanians and conspiracies against Comrade Hoxha.

The USSR conspired with a pro-Soviet faction of the Albanian party of Labor to overthrow Enver Hoxha's regime within the party. In July 1960, a plot for an armed coup d'etat organized by some government and military officials led by Soviet-trained Rear Admiral Teme Sejko...was thwarted.

indeed comrade Bourgeois Jobbyman, the khrushchevite revisionists treated the socialist camp as if they were colonies. Khrushchev as well as trying to destroy socialism in Albania targeted others as well trying to initiate a coup in the DPRK until Kim Il Sung found about the plot.
No force, no torture, no intrigue can eradicate Marxism-Leninism from the minds and hearts of men.
-Enver Hoxha
