That is a radical looking infection. Looks like a forest growing in your carboy. Get more pics pf that man. Very trippy and cool.

I basically have 2 sets of equipment, 1 for sours, one regular, in my brewery this includes a dedicated tap, though many people don't go that far. Equipment wears out, you aren't going to keep the same siphon forever, I retire my old stuff to my sour brewery, keeping good clean new equipment for the clean beer.
That's exactly what I plan on doing. I'm gonna clean it thoroughly and use it for a sour. No sense in tossing it, just need to re-purpose it!

I don't want to open my fermentation bucket again and risk it to grab a pic, but this morning I checked on an amber ale I brewed over the weekend. The only reason I have concern about this beer is bc it sucked in all the start San I had in the airlock. The star San was old(and I shouldn't have used in airlock).

Anyway- it fermented like crazy for three days, so I took a look this smorning. It didn't look abnormal but it smelled odd. Started off nice and sweet, but after a big wiff, it actually burned my nose a bit! Is that normal?

Looks fine to me. The burn is likely CO2

The burning is probably just from the CO2... I think?

I've gotten mixed messages as to whether this is an infection. I need to sanitize the thief and take a taste before I decide what to do with this. It's in secondary right now.

Nothing mixed about it; that's definitely an infection. Anything white and stringy like that is a dead giveaway.
