He needed to find out anything useful about Khan's character (information that wouldn't just come from biographical information in the library computer).
Plus looking up historical info on Khan is beyond useless seeing as in Space Seed they did that and Khan still almost killed them all.

Can a thing be an enemy? It was a machine, there was no evil or malevolence. It was simply doing what it was designed to do. The "foe" in that episode was Decker.
Erm, no. He really wasn't. He was a hero.

He was kind of both, actually. Despite his lack of malevolence he turned out to be the singular antagonist for the entire episode; his suicide mission into the doomsday machine ACCIDENTALLY revealed a weakness in the machine's design that Enterprise was able to exploit.

Kirk was the hero. Decker was just the latest in a series of Starfleet captains who crack under the pressure and get everyone killed.
