    ..then a wavelength of zero nanometers has infinite energy?

    There is no "wavelength of zero nanometers".

    Okay, how about.. as the wavelength approaches zero nanometers, the energy approaches infinity? Is there a limit in this?

    The energy per photon, yes.
    There is no proper limit.
