I want to plot a dark green and a dark green dashed graph, but unfortunately MatLab complains that the vector does not have the same length:
Error using plot
Vectors must be the same length.
Error in EasySim (line 174)
plot(x,z1,'b--',x,z2,'c--',x,z3,'b',x,z4,'c',x,z5,'g',x,z6,'g--',x,z7,'color',[0 0.5 0],x,z8,'color',[0 0.5 0],'linestyle','--')

plot(_,Name,Value) specifies line properties using one or more Name,Value pair arguments. Name-value pair settings apply to all the lines plotted.
Please refer to the documentation of plot: https://in.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/plot.html

Also, the name-value pairs must go after all of the x, y, linespec items -- which is probably why you are receiving the error.

If you want different lines to have different properties, you can plot them with separate lines of code, using 'hold on'.
plot(x,z1,'color',[0 0.5 0],'linestyle','--');
hold on
plot(x,z2,'color',[0 0.5 0],'linestyle','-');

True -- but in the case where you are using the same color and only changing the linestyle (your example) then you can use a linespec:
plot(x, z1, '--', x, z2, '-', 'color', [0 0.5 0]) %name/value pairs apply to all the plots
