Well, assuming that the obvious answer is the correct one.

They might not have actually been looking for Rand. Only some Aiel were sent to search for him, and Tsofu is close enough to the Waste that Aiel do come there fairly regularly looking for sung wood. Aside from that, the regular folk haven't all wrapped their heads around the prophecy like the clan chiefs and Wise Ones have, which is why Couladin was able to get away with pretending to be the Car'a'carn. These Maidens were distressed that he was wearing a sword, so they obviously had some notion that he was Aiel, but they might not have wanted to believe that he was the one.

Because it absorbed Fain's compulsions, and the main one is Rand. Fain says he can sense Perrin in the Two Rivers. He doesn't know whether it's Mat or Perrin; he only knows it's not Rand.

I think she explains all of that; she doesn't actually know a whole lot about them, but she studied them. She probably read about the Stone at Chaendar in the same book where Rand read about it.
