Is it possible to change the colour of an MOPixel with lua?

Not directly, but there are ways of making it appear to change colour. If you were define a particle of every possible colour (there are only 256 possible colours, so that's a bit easier to deal with), you could delete the original particle, spawn a new one with the correct colour, and then change its Sharpness, Mass, Pos, Vel, et cetera to be the same. In theory, that would work, although it could potentially be a bit buggy.

Well, if you only wanted to change between a couple colors, you'd only need those colors, not every color possible.

What circumstance do you want the color change to happen under?

You could also try having a multi-framed 1 pixel MOSRotating over the MOPixel, with each frame being a different color.
