I want to change the prompt colors or change the fonts to bold, just as we can do with BASH in Linux.

I'm not sure, but i think that csh is the same as tcsh in freebsd, in such case, try man tcsh, you'll find some useful information regarding this problem there. If you're running linux, csh is a symlink to bash. I this case you have to customize bash.

Huh? What Linux variant are you using?
Bash is a superset of sh - csh is typically linked to tcsh on every Linux system I've ever used...
