Lets say that player 1 casts a Psi Storm. Is it possible to make the psi storm model become the same color as player 1 has?
Green player casts a storm, the actor changes the psi storm model to green..

Doable yes, easy, not so much. I can think of a couple ways to do this. One, have a big long trigger that watches for effects used and sends set tint actor messages accordingly, this might lag a little though, making the effects their usual color for a short while. The other way would be pure data, very possible to just dupe the same ability many times purely for the purpose of getting different colors based on the player. This would be very tedious though, and it would require disabling of player color choice (triggers you could simply grab the player's color).
There may be other ways to accomplish this, but those are what I can think of, I've considered something like this before myself, decided it wasn't worth the effort, lol.
How hard would it be to export a model of a spell from the game, add team color and then import it back into the game?
So if red player cast psi storm it becomes red. Just as his units are red. I plan to use this on a couple of spells.
Note: I have never done anything like that. Is it possible to do for a newcomer, or it requries load of skills?
To export a model, you need to rightclick its file and pick export. To edit it, you need 3d max + m3 exporter. In 3d max u'll have to chose "team color emissive" for material's emissive mode. Then export model from 3d max and import back to the editor.
Thank you for your answear.
So this one is all I need?
Or can you recommend any specific program?
Blender is also a free alternative.

Considered easy altering of the unit textures?
For my public assets look here!
As an alternative you can use the rainbow macro :P While this wont be your desired effect its still pretty sweet.
my maps will always be Free. and Available to the public at the earliest possible date.
If you need a tester feel free to ask IShadowWolf.258
You can also catch me on the IRC most times.
Surely there is a way to tint the actors model based on team colour, actors create all our units one colour surely it is doable for other stuff, will have a look when I get home

So after a bit of playing the actor effect I thought would work doesn't work as I had thought. as said previously, the only way would be able to send an actor message through triggers :)
