Another question, I read about slice, but I do not usually understand what is V ??

You need at least 4 variables (3 independent and 1 dependent) to use slice(). V corresponds to the color of slices.

Try this
[X, Y, Z] = meshgrid(0:0.5:20, 0:0.5:20, 1:7);
V = exp(-0.2*sqrt((X-10).^2+(Y-10).^2+(2*(Z-4)).^2)); % based on guess
slice(X, Y, Z, V, [], [], 1:7)
shading interp
view([45 10])

Can you elaborate on what do you mean by the labels or colors for each stack layer? Are you talking about numbers 12, 20, 22, 23, ... in red boxes in the original image? If yes, then the easiest way is to add them manually using textboxes, as mentioned in my last comment?

Like I have 7 stack layers, so I would like 7 different colors or lets say 2 of them with same colors and the rest (5 stack layers with another color) as the following:
Stack layer 1 (red)
Stack layer 2 (blue)
Stack layer 3 (red)
Stack layer 4 (red)
Stack layer 5 (black)
Stack layer 6 (blue)
Stack layer 7 (green)
it's like in plot function when you define the line color as the following:
plot(x,y,'r') it means red for these points and so on....

Although possible, there is no straightforward way. It cannot be done the same as passing color to plot(). The following threads will be helpful, but it will require some digging around.
