Need help using graphics

After reading all about graphics and graphicLayer I'm still somewhat confused.

If I add a layer to a map it displays the map feature (or graphic? Is that the right terminology?). Is the default symbol what is listed in the service properties?

If I want to change the color do I create a symbol and add it to a graphicsLayer and then add it to the map? Does this mean that I am essentially drawing on top of the default symbol that draws first? Is it really displaying twice?

How would I change the color and add it to the map?

var imageParameters = new esri.layers.ImageParameters();
    imageParameters.layerIds = [0];
    imageParameters.layerOption = esri.layers.ImageParameters.LAYER_OPTION_SHOW;
    imageParameters.transparent = true;
 var dLayer = new esri.layers.ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer("",{"imageParameters":imageParameters});
