Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

As far as I know, you cannot cancel a transaction. Maybe someone else knows a way? You may be out of luck.

Indeed, a transaction doesn't get cancelled by request.
There are 2 options:
1. Wait until the network forgets / drops your transaction.
2. Double spend: Send a new transaction with the same inputs as the bad one, but send it to yourself and use a much higher fee so you make sure it gets confirmed.

The problem with [1] is that the wallet may re-broadcast the transaction. Some wallets do that, but I don't know which does and which doesn't.
To solve [1] you can make the wallet forget the transactions (-zapwallettxes option if you use Core wallet, you better backup it first).

For [2] you need the same "forgetting" and also either send out (to yourself) all your money, either ask somebody smarter than me to build a transaction for you with the correct inputs.

From what I know [1] may take 2 weeks after some changes in the newest Bitcoin Core and [2] may be very expensive.

I cannot double spend either I think, it just says "Coloured coin failed to broadcast the transaction"
