AF201SA Flash with Sony a6000

What hot shoe should I use so they can work together?

I don't think it will. If it does, it will probably only fire at one power setting. The camera can't 'talk' to the flash.

They'll work. But it won't do TTL. like Jawsy said, the camera can't communicate with the flash (and vice versa) to do TTL flash metering. I used a p-ttl flash with my sony A7 in manual mode and the camera had no problem triggering the flash.

The Sonys use a standard hot shoe these days. As others have said, your Sony can't drive the TTL on that model ... the other Pentax flashes will support manual. I use a 540 on my A7.

Auto Green mode should work. That mode is not dependent on the camera directly. Green mode is for 6-12 feet and at ISO 400 calls for f/11 and at ISO 100 f/5.6 - extrapolate from there or use manual mode. Chart on the flash should be reasonably accurate. I have not tried this however.
