Is hybridization affected by lone pairs? Like in AsFe3, does As have an sp2 hybridization because it makes three bonds with Fe, or does it have sp3 hybridization because it also has a lone pair?

It would be sp3. It does not matter whether it is an actual bond or a lone pair as long as there is a site of electron density present.
