ULX can be set up for multi-color messages.
They would simply need to be grouped together. First in one color, second in the next.
Yes, perhaps I'm a bit biased, but this seems to duplicate what adverts in ULX can do - just in a different, perhaps not as readable, configuration method.

Don't let that keep you from continuing to learn.

Not everything you make will be the new must-have addon for servers and certainly not your first scripts, but the best way to learn is to keep doing and by posting them here you can get valuable feedback from the community that will help you to learn and grow!
