I have a document which currently uses a Pantone green for a variety of paragraph styles, and I need to make the entire document black and white. I can delete the Pantone color in the color definitions, and replace each instance with black, but some of the colors like Magenta can't be deleted or edited.Is there a way to quickly find each instance of magenta and replace it with black, or do I need to go through and change them all manually?
Also, these magenta instances are all table heads (or first row at the head of each column, I suppose) and the magenta is the shading behind the text, not the text itself. I can't seem to find where that color is defined.

You can define table colors in the Table > Custom Ruling and Shading dialog box.
There are certain reserved colors in FrameMaker that can't be deleted.
re: …certain reserved colors in FrameMaker that can't be deleted.
Interestingly, they can be partially edited, but not for actual color values, so they can't be modified to ≡RGB or 000𝑥CMYK
Following on Rick's note...Magenta is part of the CMYK color model used by commercial printers (and your desktop color printer, too)
You can't modify the base color of a color model, so along with Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, you cannot modify Red, Green, and Blue. Those (unsurprisingly) make up the RGB color model your computer uses to display this page.
