In case of using command to launch xterm windows, the options I have so far is xterm -fn 8x16 -geometry 100x30. It's with white background and black font color. I was wondering if it's possible to have Linux Konsole/Terminal style color theme (black background, white font color, ls with colored result).

Yes.

Specifically you want the -bg and -fg parameters, and probably a few others that you'll find in the man page for xterm.
You can also set these values via the .Xresources file so you don't have to pass them as command-line arguments every time.
