You rename apps you need to edit smali files. I also didnt know how to rename my launcher but i searched a lot. To change color you need to edit xml files in res/layout or res/values.

Re: [Quiries] help from experts needed
To rename apps open androidmanifest . You might find something like 'android:label="@string/app_name" if u see some thing like this search for "app_name" (in this case ) and you will find the name of app in the strings.xml

if i hav accidently helped u, u can press that button,

colors are located in colors folder,

specifically

primary_text_****.xml
secondary_text_****.xml
etc. etc.

declared as hex codes,

please research the proper hex codes for your desired color,
and compile the apk properly to get best results,

preferably you could replace classes.dex with the previous unedited apk incase it does not install
