I recommend reading the following:

Then add properties to the nodes/edges in your Excel spreadsheet data, so you can use them in the Properties Mapper dialog to get the edge color you want and select the template (palette icon) you want.

For the palette icon, use a node configuration with "Template": "Multiple" in the Properties Mapper dialog and add a "map to"-"Template" mapping to get the desired icon.
For the edge color, use an edge configuration in the Properties Mapper dialog and add a "map to"-"Template" mapping to get the edge color.
It seems you should also correct your Excel data per edge: the edge labels seem all the same.
Your desired layout seems to be an orthogonal style. This isn't available with the Excel import, but you can run it yourself from Layout > Orthogonal > Classic
