    Answer for Questions A)

    In order for you to change the color of the sub-labes, please insert this custom CSS code in your form


    You can either make the background of the form transparent in order to match with the background of your site  please check this How to Make the Background of a Form Transparent


    Answer for Question B

    You can either Disable the Highlight Effect


    Or you can change the highlight color , with any of these  HTML color codes

    For example
