The wing like structures are called "pectines" and theyre sensory organs used to detect chemical stimulants (pheremones) and also the suitability of the substrate for placement of a spermatophore (sperm packet) during mating.

As for sexing emperors, the male usually has longer and wider pectines with more "teeth" on them than the female and the genital operculum, the small plate in the middle of the pectines is oval shaped in the male and more heart shaped in a female

Here's a pic to help: http://www.pandinusimperator.nl/EN/story_EN.htm just scroll down a bit

Gravid just means pregnant and what do u mean by white lines? do mean lines running in between the plates on the back running from left to right or the scorp? if so thats just their intersegmental membrane, if thats no what u mean then i have no idea.

Hope this helps.

Craig.
