How the following limit can be zero, since after applying L'Hospital rule the root x will be in the numerator, which together with sinx will constitute infinity.

I'm not sure you are actually using the product rule correctly. Hard to tell since you don't show what you actually did. But you have an x in the denominator. It's still infinity/infinity.

Your limit is completely wrong, the limit is 0. (1-cos(x))/x^1/2 goes to zero. Why do you think it doesn't? (1-cos(x)) is bounded. x^(1/2) isn't.
