It's possible that they were in contact with elements of MainFrame.  Or that 
they lurked in the tunnels and contacted only selected individuals.

Where are we told that anyone becomes 'infected' by Inhumi?

As for where they launched from, it's seems reasonable to hypothesise that 
they collected immature Inhumi from Green, but I don't know why that would 
imply that they could not have come originally from Blue.  Why not just 
assume that the expedition was most likely launched from whichever planet 
had the greater industrial complex?
