Well... For definitions of film grain, (cause & effect) as well as film speed etc.... There's definitions from the film company majors, such as Kodak :

and many others:

There is third party software out there to SIMULATE GRAIN... That is helpful, as they explain stuff too: This one gives you screen shots and examples of what grain loks like...
