You can increase the color depth of pictures with Image » True Color.

If you want to paint in some color on a B&W photo you'll have to use an editing program. XnView doesn't have a painting tool. The Paint filter doesn't, well... paint :? This is an operation best done with a program that supports layers anyway.
