Red was one of the mine workers. His real name is Tom Redwood.

In mind, yes.
But not made up.

No, it was the end of Black Plague (same room you sent the email from).
As you see, when Requiem starts, you get knocked out by one of the Infected because you betrayed the Hive mind like Clarence did.

He didn't get back to the incinerator.
That was in his mind while he was unconscious / dead.
You decide this in the end of the Requiem, you can either join in with Red to die, or leave the room and start the whole story from the beginning, which means (if you look from the part of the Hive mind) a new possibility to do the right thing - destroy all the evidence.

No. Nothing like that.
Those are just so you can get the password in the end of the game.

There is no known answer for this question.
But I believe it was one of the Infected to attract you to a trap.

You were already infected with the virus, so you were part of the Hive mind and Hive mind works together (as said in the end part of the Black Plague).
Clarence showed up later, and in the end, Clarence had selfish goals that made them attack you to kill Clarence.
But since you remove the virus (Clarence) from your body, you were not the primary target anymore - Clarence was - and they killed him.
Why they didn't kill you after that?
Hive mind had plans for you, same plans it suggested to Phillips father.
And those plans were to destroy any evidence leading to the mine so that the Hive mind would rest in peace.
But the email you sent, told exact coordinates to the mine and told Phillip's friend to get there and kill the Hive mind.
