    Gluons have col=2, quarks have col=1, all other particles have col=0. Which quantum number do you expect?
    "Anti" is for particles/antiparticles.

    As w-cut is 10 times width, I think that is a restriction on the width (decay width?) to simplify calculations.

    Have you looked at the Pythia manual?
