When is déanaim used? I would have expected "níl ithim," but I was thrown off by the translation for "I do" and ended up adding déanaim to the beginning - is that generally omitted in sentences where one would say "I do not ___?"

Yes — English “do-support” for negative sentences should not be translated literally.
