Material color is controlled in the material editor.  Search "materials? in your HELP to learn more about the material editor.

Yes, structural beams from Revit Structure do not have a Material Parameter. This is not a problem however, all you have to do is add one yourself by opening the .rfa associated with the beam you like and in the family editor add a mat parameter.
