One way that might work would be to "encode" the text before it's sent
with color escape sequences that the terminal already recognizes.
I'm not sure if this could be done from a plugin, but it could probably
be done in Geany's source code, although considering how esoteric an
option it is, it seems unlikely to be a desired feature for most. I
could be wrong.
What you could do if you wanted a really customized VTE is to write your
own VTE plugin and add in menu items like "Send to My Custom Terminal
in Red" or whatever.
My two cents.
