I see grey tile in some of the photos, but I don't think I see it as a color option. Is the grey I see in the photos the "gunmetal" color?

My new construction home in MA is almost finished and I'm planning on adding a basic rec. room in the basement that will have a ping-pong table and exercise equipment.

Are these safe to use as an area rug over hardwood floors? Will the hardwood show damage after they are removed?
Since these are peel and stick, a residue may remain on the floor if removed. Instead of adhering directly to the wood floor, you could use carpet tabs to 'float' the tiles as an area rug.
Can you tell me if this can be laid over a padding of any sort? If so, what thickness is recommended and what type of pad material is best for this adhesive to adhere to?
Typically these tiles are installed directly to the subfloor without any padding.

Hobnail carpet tiles are ~1/4" thick.
Can I install a moisture barrier underneath the carpet tiles, i.e. vapor barrier? Will that cause any issues with the tiles adhering? I sometimes have moisture coming up from the concrete slab in the basement and want to be sure no mold and mildew will grow underneath.
You should be fine to adhere these tiles directly to a moisture barrier.
