Of course it will cup if you heat one side. My suggestion is if the cupping is unacceptable you will need to re mill the table. I am saying rip the top back down to boards and plane them till flat. I would concentrate on the bottom.
I bet if you remove wood from the underside of the boards the top will straight out a bit .
For the color conundrum I would experiment with a purple dye . Purple Heart turns brown over time.
