Why can the food be used after pesach? And why don't the keilim need kashering for future pesach use?

There are scenarios for that even with chometz.

חמץ שעבר עליו הפסח is דרבנן and most Poskim hold Safek Lekula. The Chassam Sofer is machmir in certain sefikos of validity of the Mechira, but it's possible that's only when there is definitely Chometz in the first place.

The Mishna Berura also brings a shita that ones gamur would make it muttar.

the flavors are a Safek Chametz. Can't speak for kaj why they're not concerned. Perhaps because the flavors aside from being avidi lta'ama are batul and therefore he holds they're not asuring keilim before pesach ? Perhaps other reasons which he didn't disclose? The source of the peak is from R Mantel of KAJ. Nirbater didn't issue a statement.
It would need to be the actual flavor component that is chometz for it to be avid ltaama. If it is only the non-flavor ingredients (forgot the terminology for it) then it would able to be batel.

flavors contain many components that together create the flavor. You could try zeh vzeh goirem, but then it's zeh aino yachol vzeh aino yachol.

You would know better than me, but when I went to flavor factories with R Gavriel Finkel ZTL he showed us some ingredients which were simply to dilute it to make it measurable and were considered inert.

There was an article about this in the most recent KosherKurrents (StarK) newsletter included in the Pesach Mishpacha magazine packet.

If it was purchased before April 2016, likely yes. Otherwise, no.
