May translucent grey-appearing plastic coverings satisfy the requirement for non-transparent, non-white materials?

Yes, as long as the material is not CLEAR and Non-white, the grey color will be acceptable on a Wright Stuff model.

Must the "length of the wing cord" be maintained for the entire width of the colored section in order to get the 10% bonus?

Nothing in the rules establishes that the width equals the chord length. The colored panel must completely go from the front spar to the rear spar, ie the chord. Chord does not refer to the widest point of the wing, just the distance from the front spar to the back. The colored panel just spans the width between two wing ribs as well as the chord length to earn the 10% bonus in Wright Stuff.
