I folded this hand pre because I wasn't sure what to do in the moment and had 3 other tables up. I think a 3-bet has very little fold equity on this table, and none of these players appear to be fit-or-fold types that I can get folds from on a flop easily. I try to play 3B or fold from the SB but in this spot it seems to make sense to flat since we have low fold equity and can set mine against recs. Thoughts?
This is a very tight fold. You can certainly call, when its only a min-raise, and with the limper in the pot as well you are getting better odds to setmine, and another source of implied odds. On a flop like this you can even continue at least one street without flopping a set, since 77 has decent showdown value in itself.

So because the HUD marks PFR: 0 in ten hands you are folded. And if he marks 40%, do you think he is a maniac? This is a very common mistake when using HUDS. They forget about sample sizes and mistakenly believe that they made the best decision. 77 is an excellent hand to continue or even bluff when we think that villains play too wide. Also calling on the flop is still acceptable in this texture, since the V does not seem very competent limping on preflop and the other V not either, when does min raise.
