'aterm -fg color'
'locate Xresources' or maybe you're thinking of .Xdefaults?

~/.Xdefaults
If you don't already have that hidden file, you can just create one with the settings you have in your post.

Something I noticed about aterm and Xdefaults that I found kind of annoying:
If you have your settings in Xdefaults, and try to add or change one or more of these settings in a command line argument (e.g. aterm -bg gray), it will drop all settings and revert to a default aterm...at least it does this on my system.
Does it do this when you do just "aterm" with no options?
