What does:

Green Broke
Husband Broke
Dead Broke

Mean? Also, are there other 'brokes' that I missed?

Green broke I think has a pop up definition for it. Usually its been under saddle or been to a trainer for 90 days so it knows the basics.
Husband broke is a new one on me I imagine it means its broke for a beginner rider.
Dead broke is suppose to mean its bomb proof or that its never ever going to act up or spook. To me there is no such thing as a "dead broke" horse unless its actually dead

There the ties you hook the horses up to when tacking up or grooming.

Cross-ties are just another way to tie your horse, like instead of on a post or something. :) There are 2 ropes that can be hooked on either side of your horse's halter...
Looks like this:

Ooooooh okay! I guess I've seen those, but have never used them, I've always just tied off my horse using the lead.

Correct me if I'm wrong. :P
I always thought luke was a light sorrel mix with pal. Or champion color but I definitely. Think he a light sorrel it just the way the sun touch or anything that reflex his color. Sometime in the early morning he look like if he almost pal. When he really isn't a pal. He just a very light sorrel color horse.
