Beginner's questions re K-30, please

Hello there I shoot mainly Sony, I also like collecting lenses and I ended up having a massive range of manual and af. K mount now is a significant part of it, mainly the older M. I use them with adapter on my a6000.Decided to get a used Pentax to be able to use them more naturally without adapters especially after the most recent acquisition of a 50mm 1.2. I got a used k-30 body for a good price and liked it straight away.
I have some beginner questions if you don't mind please (I had a look at the manual re first question, got more confused ..)I enabled the aperture control and set the focal length it gave me a proper exposure using manual mode and the green button

My question:, the built-in flash always over expose, and I couldn't find the A(auto /ttl) options in settings. Only on and off with or without red eye reduction. I am sure this a user error but I have one week to return the camera and I don't want to keep it if it is faulty. I tried different modes other than the manual with the same result.
Other question what are manual focus assist functionality on the k 30
Thanks in advance, Badr
