for part b what is the importance of "x" being a halogen? also how would you go about solving part b

In the solutions, it says that it takes energy to break an X-X bond, so processes with halogens will be endothermic and increased temperatures favors the formation of products.

It's not especially important. Focus on the fact that energy is required to break bonds, and since we can clearly see the breakage of bonds (and no formation of new ones), we know the reaction will be endothermic.

I think the key idea is that bond is being broken during the reaction, and it takes energy (heat) to break bonds. In this case the reaction is endothermic; therefore, increasing the temperature will favor product formation.

I am assuming that due to the strong bonds between diatomic molecules it would require heat in order to be broken. That would mean that the reaction is endothermic, and therefore an addition of heat would push the reaction towards the products.
