This question makes no sense, it would be better to say "an arbitrarily large number" instead of "infinity", to avoid a side discussion on the nature of infinity.

Ain't nothing wrong with 'infinity', it's a concept we mathematicians talk about by using limits all the time, and limits are the basis for calculus

Obviously league crashes and riot spends days working on it and give us only a 10 win boost

Hmm, assuming infinite stacks for Nasus' Q and Sion's E...I think Sion lives and Nasus dies.

Since both have infinite stacks, then they both have the same number of stacks.

Sion has infinity health on top of his base health (so infinity + 2171 hp at Lv. 18), along with his base armor + the armor from Thornmail.

Nasus gets (infinity + 110) damage on Siphoning Strike plus his base magic resistance.

Basically infinity + infinity cancel out leaving the 110 damage added to Siphoning Strike which can barely put a dent in Sion's base health. So Sion lives. But Nasus can't possibly have enough hp to soak the reflected magic damage even with MR (really the reflected damage is basically infinity also). Even if he had 100% lifesteal (not likely) it either triggered before the Thornmail damage hit, being effectively useless, or after the Thornmail damage hit, again useless since he's already dead.

So either way Nasus dies and Sion lives.

They both die because 30% of infinity is infinity.

No, sion just has infinite health, not infinite + base. Sion dies, and nasus as well. The damage registers with sion, and the return value is registered with nasus. Considering nasus does not have infinite HP, he would die. This is because any value not defined as >(or =) 30% infinity would not withstand 30% of infinity.

The cycle of life and death would continue...

Both would die, then both would return to life with 30% of health and mana after 4 seconds of stasis.
