Hi,
So, for the first question (1): Create text fields in InDesign and type the value you want. There’s a checkbox in the Buttons and Forms panel in InDesign called “Read Only.” That will lock the field in Acrobat.
(2) A very basic script to do division would be something like this:

Code:
v1 = this.getField(“Your field name goes here”).value;
v2 = this.getField(“Another field name”).value;
this.getField(“Third field”).value = v1/v2;

Add that to the field called (in this example) “Third field” as a custom calculation script.
(3) Not sure what you mean about the colour.
