How can I find the parameters in a basis set?

Go to Basis Set Exchange and click on the elements in which you're interested, then click the basis set in which you're interested (in your question, you mentioned 6-31G) and then for "Format&...

Is there a benchmark paper that takes into account how often each molecule is studied?

I don't think any studies such as this are currently available, however I think they violate a general feeling I have about "benchmarking". Studies which do general benchmarks are designed ...

How can I find the parameters in a basis set?

As Nike noted in his answer, Gaussian (and most gaussian orbital based electronic structure programs) does use fixed orbital exponents throughout a calculation. These are either from previously ...

Is there a benchmark paper that takes into account how often each molecule is studied?

I certainly see the value in having such a benchmark dataset. If asked why such a dataset doesn't yet exist, I would say that it already takes an enormous amount of work to create things like the ...

Citing a pseudopotential

Other answers are most welcome, but here I will outline the process through which I went to find a reference that you can cite for a hydrogen pseudopotential. Hopefully this will help you find ...

How can I find the parameters in a basis set?

A few points to add to Nike and Tyberius' answers. Literature basis sets $R_{nl}(r) =\sum_i {d_i^{nl}} \exp (-\alpha_{il} r^2) $ indeed have fixed exponents $\alpha_i$ and contraction coefficients $...
