what is the difference between dearg and rua?

rua is used for hair and fur and such.

I see, so it's like the sort of difference there is between yellow and blond?

Could i use "buí 'is dearg" in this case.

While is probably developed as a contraction of agus, you don't need to use an apostrophe to indicate that - you'd just write buí is dearg. (Though I don't know if Duolingo will accept is for agus everywhere).
