Hi,
with 1m, you already set it to be bold, and AFAIK there is no 'more bold'. Because there are only 16 Colors to choose from, you only have that red and that yellow. If you have a graphical Terminal, like gnome-terminal, you can slightly change fonts and colors, if you have text login, you already have whats possible.
for 2): yellow is 33m, red is 91m.
For 3): you add your "export PS1..." to ~/.bashrc and you have your prompt with every login.

If you use putty there is no difference between bold and flat font.

You could try all different numbers to find out, which number your required color is. Since there is no specific documentation for that from the developers, its the way i would do it.

Manfred BertlManagerCommented:
You only can increase the font size, if your Mobaterm has an option for that. Under "Settings/Configuration/Terminal" you can change Font and Fontsize, as well as the color theme.
