In brief: Generally
Make sure the contacts are fitted by a professional contact lens fitter. Do not sleep in them-- the risk of infection goes up 30 fold.
If the contacts are managed properly, there should be no long-term effects.

In brief: Maybe...
If they are prescribed by an eye care professional and are not novelty lenses, color contacts carry the same risks as clear lenses.
Most important thing is regular hygiene.
