How did Quetzal (and the implied other inhumi) get aboard the Whorl is a question that has come up a few times before. If we are meant to answer this question within the context of the Long Sun then the mechanism I prefer is that the humans have been parked in the green/blue system for some time and that some landers have flown down already and returned. This could have happened intentionally as some of the crew flew to Green, discovered "demons" there and fled; or automatically with mainframe launching landers to collect specimens and to ensure that this was a suitable habitat for the cargo. Inhumi then could have stowed away and returned to the Whorl this way.
What happens with Quetzal is a specific instance of the general case in Wolfe, where an entity impersonates another entity they start to become them; never more so than when their impersonation leads them towards God. Like a gravitational field the force of attraction continues to increase until they become full (agents) of God.
