Tony did not want to tip his hand to Obadiah Stane that he was suspicious of him. Obadiah had been cordial up to that point (and given that Obadiah tries to kill him afterward, Tony's fears would have been well founded). Since Tony was not a frequent visitor to the building where Obadiah's office was located, and Pepper was, it made more sense for her to go. ...

We don't know because we don't know how anyone is able to use the Infinity Stones, it just seems to be either instinctive/intuitive or the Stone's are doing the work for you by guessing at what you want them to do. A good example of this (disregarding Tony and Smart Hulk because they had studied the Mind Stone) is Peter Quill. He was able to hold the Power ...
