Re: Is there any universal way to redirect file operations to nul?

I think it depends on the program you run? As soon as you start a program, cmd is no longer in control. That is, you can suppress the console output of a program (most of the times), but I don't think you can fiddle with any data operations the program performs.

Re: How to detect in 7-Zip fatal error #2 "Wrong password" in windows batch?

You could try to intercept the error text ' ERROR: Data Error in encrypted file. Wrong password? ' by piping the output of 7Zip to the Find command. Don't know the exact syntax for 7Zip, but maybe something like 7z L %userprofile%\downloads\file.7z | find /i "wrong password" And then check...
