I'm entirely new to towing, and from what I've seen of trailer brakes, there are usually some sort of manual controls on the dash somewhere.

How does trailer braking work with the new (2019-2020) RAV4 Hybrids? Is it configured on the touch display?

The owner's manual makes no mention of how to configure trailer brakes.

I have not seen any thing about the Rav4 having a builr in brake controler. If you plan on towing I would recomend gettjng one installed to help slow the trailer.

Toyota doesn't have a 7-pin harness? Wouldn't I need 7-pin harness to add dedicated trailer brakes?
Correct, Toyota only installs the 4-pin harness by default. If you want to use a trailer with brakes then you'll need to install a 4-way to 7-way adapter like https://www.etrailer.com/p-ETBC7.html (or a dedicated 7-pin harness instead of the 4-pin) along with a brake controller.
