I have a NEX7 and want to put a SEL 18 135 lens on it. Do i have to load the firmware for that lens ??? Sony website says there is no downloads for it .

You don't need to download anything. The lens will work just fine on the old camera, with automatic lens geometry correction working. The lens provides the correction data to the camera, without the camera needing to be updated or told anything about the lens.

Lenses can have firmware updates, but it's seldom needed or provided. When it is, it's for an older lens to work optimally on a newer camera which might have additional autofocus features that the lens can't implement without a firmware update. Generally, it's to get faster AF, but isn't often needed, particularly not with newer lenses.
