In a ZvZ, is it possible to mind control an enemy infestor, which then mind controls another infestor and so on? or are they immune to that?

Yes it's possible. Controlled unit has all abilities to use. I've uploaded video demonstration to youtube

Next step: Mind control a worker of another race and try to build a CC/Nexus. :) – Tom Wijsman Apr 16 '11 at 13:04
@TomWij - I haven't played SC2 but didn't that work in SC1 if you were Protoss? – Shinrai Apr 16 '11 at 13:56
@Shinrai - I haven't played SC1 but Protoss can't do such thing anymore in SC2. – Tom Wijsman Apr 16 '11 at 15:26
@Shinrai There is no dark archon in SC2. The mind control ability was given to the zerg in their infestor unit called neural parasite. – Sorean Apr 16 '11 at 15:47
@TomWij there's actually an achievement for building a marine as zerg. ( I think. Might be a zealot) – Raven Dreamer Apr 16 '11 at 17:40
