    'M-x font-lock-mode' should do the colouring for you. Not sure about the indent size. I use vim now, not emacs.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    edit your ".emacs" file (probably in your home directory) using the Lisp like emacs scripting language.

    - OR -

    click: Options -> Customize Emacs -> Top level Customization Group
    and customize through the GUI.

    hmmm, my standard indent size is 4 too, but may actual tab size when coding is 2.
    try adding this to your .emacs file, you can change the 4 to whatever tab size you want.
    Code:
    ;; set tab size to 4
       (defun my-c-mode-common-hook ()
         (setq c-basic-offset 4)
         )
       (add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook 'my-c-mode-common-hook)
