Default startup file for bash: .profile
CSH/TCSH over BASH: It depends on your preferences. I personally use TCSH, but BASH is much easier to use when you're starting out. Take a look at the man pages for BASH and CSH or TCSH, and see which one looks more comfortable. On the surface, though, they both operate the same for general commands, etc. (i.e., you can still execute commands the same way). An example of a difference is in the setting of environment variables (BASH: export x=y; TCSH: setnv x y).
Setting color in console: What do you mean by setting color? If you are wanting color ls listings, put the command "alias ls=ls --color" in your .profile (for BASH) and everytime you type ls it will give you a color listing.
