you can change any icon for any folder u like by right clicking and selecting 'properties' and then clicking on the icon of folder in 'Basic' tab (the icon beside the name, type, contents).

as far as color changing I just know a method of finding an icon with color u want (or make if can using gimp or other tools) then changing the icon as mentioned above.

If the icon is a .svg file, you can use InkScape to edit the image. I have a collection of my own icons I keep for specific apps to go with the themes I use. By modifying the .svg file, you are guaranteed to have the exact size needed thanks to the structured/scalable graphic.
