RE: changing colours
Overall it's a complex task and I have not seen anywhere a technique that is both simple and efficient.

The most important thing to match is the lightness. Use the Histogram display. Make a rought selection on your new face and watch the histogram. Make a rough selection on the replaced face and watch the histogram. It's best of in these selection you remove parts that aren't skin: hair, lips, eyes.... Use the Levels tools to make the histogram of the new face match as well as possible the histogram of the face it replaces (make sure you have removed the previous selection...).

Once this is done you can do slight adjustements in Hue using the Hue/Saturation tool.
