What did you google for?
'emacs default-frame-list cursor' and
'emacs default-frame-list font' gave me some very good hits, 
say, on the emacswiki. 

But...

Emacs has sooo much info ... use it!
Always there, always uptodate.

a) * `C-h r' 
   * i "cursor"
   * couple of ","s
,----
| You can customize the cursor's color, and whether it blinks, using the
| `cursor' Custom group (*note Easy Customization::).
`----
so `M-x customize-group RET cursor RET' is one way.

b) I already cited (elisp) Creating Frames
   * `u' ... look around ... Frame Parameters sounds good
   * Window Frame Parameters sounds good
   * (elisp) Font and Color Parameters
   Bingo!

... Which also says:

,----[ (info "(elisp)Font and Color Parameters") ]
|    The following frame parameters are semi-obsolete in that they are
| automatically equivalent to particular face attributes of particular
| faces
