You can do this in Photoshop - use the layers option add a layer and use the colour option.

Painting on that layer will colour the Black and White photo. As this is on it's own layer you can switch the effect on and off.

Here you go - step-by-step

Yes, you have to colour them - the only way I have seen B/W changed to colour is this..

The original pictures are taken on B/W film using a red, green and blue filter. Result three B/W negatives. If you then project these using red, green and blue light and overlap the images the image appears in full colour.

In Photoshop all you are doing is guessing the colours and painting over the B/W image.
