Most table tennis rubbers will be between 30 and 45.
A lower number will tend to provide more spin at lower speeds (including serves).
A higher number will tend to provide more spin at higher speeds.
Players who tend to play a 'Chinese' style (straighter elbow when looping) will find a higher number to be better.
What is the best rubber?

Short answer, if you stick any rubber on the Nittaku Resoud blade you will have the most expensive ping pong paddle in existence. It costs $2,712(plus whatever rubber you glue on) and it is considered the Stradivarius of table tennis paddles.

In most cases, ping pong paddles that have different colors on each side have a competitive advantage to each side. For example: the black side might allow for less spin than the red side, and vice versa. This allows the players to flip the paddle if they want to return the ball in a certain manner.
As long as you wait for the 'boosting effect' to wear off before you glue it onto the blade, it should be perfectly legal, as you've only livened up the sponge and not modified the top-sheet. See the more detailed article on Priming Table Tennis Rubbers on this site for more details.
In table tennis, speed glue is a glue that is used to re-fix the rubber surfaces to the racket or paddle. Speed glue is usually applied around 30 minutes before a match starts. The use of speed glue has been found to increase the elasticity of the racket, which adds speed and spin to the ball.
