Does anyone know the best way to color modeling chocolate? Can I color small amounts with gel food coloring after it's made? Or should I add color as I am making it?

Yes. I usually make a whole batch of white and color whatever and whenever I need. I just keep it in a zip-lock bag in my cupboard.

If I want to color a batch while I'm making it (dark colors or black) I use powdered color. Once the batch has been made, I can break off a little and add the color in.

No they are all different, fondant and modeling chocolate are 2 different things, modeling chocolate is just corn syrup and melted chocolate.., fodant is totally different. google search them and you will get more info.
