I have any rights to find out who evaluated me,
If you are a member of a union they will be able to answer your question about what is appropriate in an evaluation. If you aren't in a union your employer should still have a written policy setting out how they will do evaluations. Read through that in order to see whether you have been evaluated according to that policy. If not, then you have grounds to complain to your employer for breaching terms of employment.
In all likelihood, however, you are like most security guards who work for firms that take advantage of the powerlessness of their employees and so mistreat them. Certainly your second question indicates that this is the case. Such companies may not have any evaluation policy, or may feel that they are not obliged to follow them, since there are no consequences if they don't.
Unfortunately they are pretty safe in that assumption. Unless you are prepared to begin to organize a union to empower you and fellow employees who are mistreated, you don't have a lot of capacity to call your employer to account. You might try consulting a labour lawyer to see if there is something in California law that can help you as well.
As for your employer calling you bad names and telling you that you are fat, that is absolutely unacceptable. There's little you can do, however. Try looking for another employer.
Good luck to you,
