With depending on what mode user selected. If user set the
raise/high/fall/low time values, that means the LED will work at
breathing mode, and we set brightness to turn on/off the breathing
mode LED.

Yes, they are independent for each LED.

Yes, firstly we should set the raise/high/fall/low time values for red
LED, blue LED and green LED (each LED time values are same), then set
one brightness value to turn on the red LED, blue LED and green LED.

As I explained, when user set the raise/high/fall/low time values,
that means user selects the breathing mode of the LED. Otherwise the
LED works at normal mode.

But our hardware specification defines magic numbers, not times values
in milliseconds. So I think we should follow our specification's
definition, and user should also follow the same rules.
