I googled "stop orgmode babel having to confirm" and got these:

Both refer to babel variables you can set.[1] You can put them in a
single file (at the very top):

# -*- org-confirm-babel-evaluate: nil; -*-

Or add this to .emacs

(setq org-confirm-babel-evaluate nil)

Or use #+bind[2] within a file (similar to the first local variable example).

Guessing it's something on your side? Having never used it, I just added:

(require 'ox-texinfo)

I get an [i] option after C-e with various "Export to texinfo" options.

No experience, so can't speak to this.

Not sure where that was. I use this page as my reference and don't see
it (but do see js):
