You just need to assign color of all cell for selected column in RowDataBound event;
For example:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
     e.Row.Cells[2].ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.blue;  // Column 2

}

One more example:
protected void GridView2_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        {
            e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.blue; // Column-1
        }
    }

You can use:

System.Drawing.Color.LightBlue;

Many other color available. Just try by using dot (.) after color. System.Drawing.Color.

Let me know for any question.

Yes, we can use the CSS style sheet.
But in your case, I believe above option is good.

Yes, you can by using the below statement in gridview_rowdatabound event.
put your Custom Class Name in Place of bottom-border

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

 If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
      If previousExpenseType <> e.Row.Cells(2).Text And previousExpenseType.Length > 0 Then
        e.Row.CssClass += "bottom-border"
      End If

      previousExpenseType = e.Row.Cells(2).Text
    End If
