The answers to these questions can be found in Chapter 9.  In that chapter, the greasers are getting ready for the rumble that they are going to have with the Socs.  Pony is thinking about why various of the kids in the gang like to fight.

He decides that Steve fights out of hatred.  He says that Darry does it because he has pride.  He figures that Soda likes to fight just because it is fun for him.  He then goes on to decide that here is no really good reason that he has for fighting.
