Red: Fireball is perhaps the wrong word. Think of it more as a ball of intense heat and light energy.
As to the darkside issue, no specific use of the force is "light" or "dark" even force lightning can be used be a jedi, though obviously not on people. The key is intent, Hal was preparing to defend himself, albeit in an aggressive manner. Besides he wouldn't have used them on living people. His mindset about these Sith is more like the Obi-Wan and the battle droids.
