There is no free way to SIM-Unlock the Xperia Play, and you don't need to SIM-Unlock your phone to Unlock the Bootloader.

The lowercase "r" in LOADER VERSION: "r4A069" means that you Unlocked your Bootloader.

Yes your Bootloader is now Unlocked. BTW when you dialed "*#*#7378423#*#*" and then went to > Service Info > Configuration. Did it say "Bootloader unlock Status: Yes"?

Info 2 [Depository]FTF Kernels for the Xperia Play

Okay, Since you unlocked your Bootloader with the test point method and you had "Bootloader unlock Status: No", you do not have access to Fastboot Mode. You can still flash a Costume Kernel but it will have to be flashed through Flash Mode in FlashTool.

Click on where it says "[Depository]FTF Kernels for the Xperia Play" in my signature and you can download Kernels that are converted in to FTF files (from the original .img file), so you can flash them via Flash Mode.
