> meaning that Plot tries to do a smooth fit between these intervals. In my case, x value increments by integer value, say unit increase. For that discrete sets of x values, I have respective y values and for using ListPlot, I have to thread these x and y values. Thats why I am using Thread.

I figured out how to color them differently - using RBCColor option. But still got stuck with the Legends and the rotate labels options.
