It should work to say

     \font\gena="[D:/w32tex/fontok/GenAR102.TTF]:color=AABBCC" at 5pt

though I haven't tried exactly this form on Windows myself.

(What's "script=gena" supposed to do? Gentium doesn't have OpenType  
features (yet), and that's not a script tag that I recognize anyway....)

In general, \font expects a font name, optionally followed by a colon  
and list of attributes/features; if the font name is enclosed in  
[...] then it is interpreted as a filename rather than an actual font  
name, but the rest of the \font string (colon and features) are still  
treated in the same way.
