    This looks both familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. There is webbing and white ... things that makes me think mite or mealy bug attack, but I think this needs higher resolution pictures to get a better idea of what it can be.
    If you mean that the thorns are changing colour from green to brown, then it is perfectly normal.
    Yes, these plants should be fed.
    Sun damage is usually permanent.
    It is not a cactus, but an Euphorbia.
