First, the AF illuminator of the flash doesn't illuminate. Is it actually infrared?

The AF assist light on the flash outputs a near IR pattern, and it is only useful for DSLR's phase detection AF.   With NEX-7's CDAF, that light is useless in assisting autofocus.   What NEX-7 needs is just more light, which is provided by the camera's LED AF assist light.
