Huh? Applying color effects to black & white is done on the video side of
a color corrector. More often than not it appears as a wash or, if done
carefully, as a very classy duotone effect (perhaps close to what you're
looking for). There are other interesting effects possible as well when
using Power Windows - notably, the Key In feature.
I personally prefer the rich tonality of carefully exposed black & white as
a starting point.
