    so, we can resolve binaries in these images?

    In this case, there is another source below and slightly to the left of the main source. It is probably contaminating the WISE measurements.

    Is it truly associated, e.g., is it really a binary? We would need spectra to be sure.

    Whether or not we can resolve binaries here depends on how far away from each other they are, and how far from us the pair is.

    As a galaxy observer, I tend to gain distance from redshift estimates, but how do they measure objects like these? Could I measure them?
