i have found growing hot peppers near mild & sweet peppers increases the heat on mild peppers. will growing peppers like cayenne & jalapeno near my herbs affect the flavor on mint, sweet basil, etc.?

Welcome. I have read that you aren't supposed to grow different pepper types close together as they will cross-pollinate. That may be what happened with yours. I would guess that your mint, basil, etc., or anything else that isn't in the pepper family would be fine to grow near peppers without affecting the flavor.
