2) Make sure they have the correct sizes.
1) SF's GRP Converter and PyGRP of PyMS can both export to single BMP sprite sheets. You can do recolours much faster by editing the sprite sheet. However, if you're trying to do something requiring a bit more finesse, you're still going to end up having to modify each frame 1 by 1.
Organics would most easily be done by modelling, animating, and rendering. To do a whole custom organic unit, 200 frames... Well, I hope you are either Asian or in love with drawing.
3) If you're just trying to shoot a plain old grenade, you can use a normal unit-only spell like Parasite, give it a button and other FireGraft edits, check which iscript header Parasite calls, and write that code block out while either using a useweapon opcode or an "attackwith 2" opcode... but with the latter, you would need to change Marine's air weapon to the grenade weapon, and make sure that the Marine uses his GndAtk animation against air units.
4) No, and don't expect anyone to.
