Is this supposed to be anything we've seen?
Nope.

It was made partly with saidin. Perhaps Rand can sense the taint in it better than anyone because by this point he has channeled a couple of times.

So I don't really get her reasoning here.
It's a matter of precision. She could find Perrin more certainly than she could find them.

Elyas isn't counting the Waste. The 'beyond' bit has to come from stories of the voyages of Hawkwing's children to Seanchan and Shara, though the stories about Berelain's line are apparently not believed. That expedition failed, which is why the line ended up in Mayene.

Perrin can smell emotions and the like; they probably smell rabid.
