What is the industry standard on color to line weight convention?

AKOs (All Knowing Ones),

 

In the plot dialogue there is a check box that says
"Scale Lineweights".

How exactly does that work?  What is it based
on?

From the help file.

 

Scales lineweights in proportion to the plot scale.
Lineweights normally specify the linewidth of printed objects and are plotted
with the linewidth size regardless of the plot scale.

Your lineweights are set for a full size drawing at
1:1.  If you scale you drawing down, then select scale lineweights and the
thickness of the line will scale the same as you plot scale.

What if the box is greyed out?

I know how to read, and I was hoping for
a little more practical help.

Explain then why the check box would be greyed
out.  That is what I mean when asking what it is dependent on.  Again,
"What is it based on, or controled by?"

Only works on floating view ports, uses scale relative to
paper space to determine the amount of scale to apply.

If the box is greyed out then you are trying to
plot from model space.  You must be plotting from paperspace to be able to
use scale lineweights.
