Here you go:

SCOTCHBRITE GRIT CHART (courtesy of Charlest)
3M Scotch Brite Nylon Pads:
7445 - White pad, called Light Duty Cleansing - (1000) 1200-1500 grit
7448 - Light Grey, called Ultra Fine Hand - (600-800) 800 grit.
6448 - Green (?), called Light Duty Hand Pad - (600) 600 grit
7447 - Maroon pad, called General Purpose Hand - (320-400) 320 grit
6444 - Brown pad, called Extra Duty Hand - (280-320) 240 grit
7446 - Dark Grey pad, called Blending Pad (180-220) 150 grit
7440 - Tan pad, called Heavy Duty Hand Pad - (120-150) 60(?)
Green Scotch Brite is available EVERYWHERE. It's 600 grit.
Blue Scotch-Brite is considered to be about 1000 grit.
(The value inside the parentheses is directly from 3M.)

That would be 600 grit. No difference

Green is green (is ecological {small joke}) is 600 grit, when made by 3M.

what is the effect of say: using a scotch brite pad to apply a cleaner/polish?
And which ones work well together for medium conditions. Just a ball park appraisal is fine!

The effect of saying, "using a Scotch Brite pad to apply polish" is counterproductive because Dcotch Brite pads are abrasives. Using a Scotch Brite pad to apply a cleaner like CLean and Dull is useful because it helps either restore the ball's surface or initiates the re-surfacing process, depending on which grit of SB you use and what grit the ball was before you applied the SB.

(Not sure what you were implying by using the phrase, "the effect of saying"?)
