I can't find this information anywhere and I don't have BB10 Dev Alpha.
Do I need to specify some permission in the manifest to be able to leverage NFC functionality in my native app?

There will be documentation for all the BlackBerry 10 APIs emerging as we head towards the final release :-)
That said, watch this space (or better still, follow @mdwrim on Twitter) as we'll be releasing a knowledge base article explaining how to use SNEP for peer to peer transfer on BlackBerry 10 along with working code very, very soon!
