I've had no problem with colors changing between native and .PDF formats.
Just make sure you are printing to the SAME printer you printer the original
on. Every printer handles colors differently.

It sounds like it would work. Please try it and let us know if it works. A
one or two page test should be adequate. I've done similar things with B&W
postscript and it works fine. I haven't tested color though.
