"After the Dor Haflagah, only Avrohom’s progeny would be able to affect the world with
their actions; only they will be able to sanctify the physical universe; from that moment
on, only they have the Tzelem Elokim."

So does this mean Hashem won't bring punishment on non Jews who are wicked, for their wickedness or for serving Avoda Zara..? But will only do so because of Klal Yisroel?

No, it doesn't mean that. Non-Jews also get punished for sins. Such sins just don't damage anything in the universe (besides the sinner).
