You should mark the list as allowing only members to post, then add
troublemakers to the the list of addresseses described as "addresses
whose postings are always held for approval". both these settings are
under admin/privacy.

It's possible, but unfortunately not easily configurable.  If you
search for "#ffffff" in the code and replace it with whatever color
you want, it'll probably do what you want.
