Can anyone beam some insight as to why a (2021) MBP is not recognizing my camera via mini HDMI port?

The HDMI port on the camera and the computer are outputs.  Connecting them together is risking permanent electronic damage to either or both devices.  Stop doing it.

The HDMI output ports are intended to connect to an external monitoring device.  If you wish to record the HDMI output of the camera, then you will need to add some type of HDMI capture accessory device to your computer.
