As far as "mono" and "stereo" are concerned, with a half stack you can only run mono. A full stack is required to run stereo because you will need two separate cabinets. The choice of either 4 or 8 ohms depends on whether you are running one or two cabinets. There is a switch on the back of the head for these choices. If you are using only one cabinet you would switch to 4 ohms, if you had two cabinets it would be 8 ohms.

A 4x12 cab can be run stereo. Some Marshall 4x12 cabinets have a switch on the back to do this. All it does is split the left speakers with the right speakers. You can then plug an amp into the left speaker imput for the left speakers or do the same to right. If you have 2 amps, you can run them both at the same time. One left, one right.
