for the last part of the question, it asked which was more thermodynamically stable the disassociation of F2 or Cl2 and the answer is Cl2 because it has a smaller equilibrium constant but why?

A smaller equilibrium constant means at equilibrium the reactants are more favored, or it is less likely to decompose. This means that the lower the equilibrium constant, the more stable.
