No they aren't; you create .eps files from the .xpm output that do_dssp generates.

As with most (all) Gromacs analysis tools, create an index group for the 
residues you want to analyze.  That will require you to re-run your analysis or 
otherwise hack your .xpm file (probably not a good idea).

Use an appropriate .m2p file to alter the attributes of the data.  An example is 
given in the online manual.

Do you want to change the colors assigned, or some other aspect of the legend? 
You could, in theory, edit the color assignments in the .xpm file.
