You have to download the source code, edit it with your favorite color, tag name and rules, compile it and replace the existing binary with the new one.

If you want something similar but a little less complicated, take a look at AwesomeWM. The version2 use a simple config file to manage all that and the version 3 offer a much more flexible lua based configuration, but it take some skill to go far.

Probably should look around at, and much of what I learned for configuring dwm was from the arch forums just search for dwm and you will find a lot of information there.

Also, read the config.h file found in the dwm source directory, that will help give you an idea, also.
