well you should be able to select all the white with the wand tool (w) then invert the selection to get each part (ctrl+i) then you could create a new layer and use the fill tool to create flat solid color fills, and play with layer effects (multiply probably) to get a coloring effect. Or you could use the colorize tool which is in hue and saturation (I think).

Probably a better method would be using your orginal B&W image as an alpha layer, and just invert it.

The background would become black (completely transparent), the forground would become white (completely opaque), and the anti-aliasing around the edges would be at varying stats of transparency.

Then you can just CTRL+Click it to make your selection, make a new regular layer, Edit -> Fill with black.

Then you've got an identical copy of your original image, but on a transparency. Now you can put whatever you want behind it with no risk of halos around the image, or hours and hours of endless tweaking of the edges :)
