go into gnome-terminal
edit profiles
create several profiles with the color schemes you want to use, for instance I created one called greenscreen set the text to green and the background to black.


gnome-terminal --window-with-profile=greenscreen

a terminal opens up using the colors I configured in the profile..

now create your aliases..
