In my table below, I would like to know how to make the header "Dynamic Instructions" where the two words aren't separated so much vertically.

Sometimes one simply has to adjust things manually:

&\smash{\raise2bp\hbox{Instruction}}&{\small 0}&{\small 1}&{\small 2}&{\small 3}&{\small 4}&{\small 5}&{\small 6}&{\small 7}&{\small 8}&{\small 9}&{\small 10}&{\small 11}&{\small 12}&{\small 13}\\
{\small 1}&&F &D &I&$Y_{0}$&$Y_{1}$&$Y_{2}$&${\color{red}Y_{3}}$&W\\
{\small 2}&& &F &D&i&i&i&I&${\color{red}Y_{0}}$&$Y_{1}$&$Y_{2}$&$Y_{3}$&W\\
{\small 3}&& & &F&D&I&X&w&w&w&w&w&w&W\\
{\small 4}&& \\
{\small 5}&& \\
