Making prettier chat messages

My guild uses its own points system to allocate loot, and I'm in the process of writing a web-based system to manage it. One of the features of that system is going to be an addon in-game to report the number of points someone has when they roll. I have a couple of questions about this:

1) Is there a way to gag or append to a chat message that's coming in? I can use CHAT_MSG_SYSTEM and DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage() to add another line, but I'd really like it to say "Joe rolls 15 (1-100) (15 points)" to save some space.

2) Is there a way to set the chat colour for individual parts of a message? It'd be nice if I could colour, say, the points value differently to the rest of the text.

Thanks in advance for your help
