Halo Trues are supposed to emulate the Topre feel. The majority of typers prefer the bump of a keystroke because the "tactility" give them a motoric feedback that the keystroke was registered by the computer. Some like a distinctive "clicky" sound on top of that. If you intend to use it at a open space office your colleagues might feel annoyed by the clickyness. Do you prefer those traits? If none you have to choose among the "linear" switches. https://input.club/the-comparative-guide-to-mechanical-switches/ Sure I can write everything down now, but you should research for yourself :) Hint: The lightest switches for this drop are the Copper, Silver and Golds in their respective group.

Speed Silver does not feel like a Topre switch. The Halo True captures many of the desirable elements present in the Topre switch, while maintaining its identity as a Cherry MX style switch. It is not meant to mimic Topre, but to provide a superior feel using a spring-slider mechanism.
For your other question - the Speed Silver switch should be the lightest, followed closely by the Copper switch and then the Gold. I believe the Halo True and Halo Clear are the most typist friendly however, as they make it challenging to bottom out and have very smooth pre-load when you first press down the switch.

Copper does have a tactile bump like browns. Silver is the linear switch (no bump).
