Sorry, this can't be done with the current versions -- colors are either =
atomic or whole-object properties (with a couple of minor exceptions). =
The only way around this right now is to distribute the states you want =
to show over a set of objects with different colors:

Text objects are brand new, and can only be built right now using =
compiled graphics objects (CGOs).
CGOs are always associated with specific states, so adding a label which =
changes during the course of a movie would be straightforward, except =
that text objects are completely undocumented. Here is a start:
# REQUIRES PyMOL 0.80
# save as cgo_3Dtext01.py
from pymol import cmd
from pymol.cgo import *
from pymol.vfont import plain
cgo =3D 
axes =3D [[2.0,0.0,0.0],[0.0,2.0,0.0],[0.0,0.0,2.0]]
pos =3D [0.0,0.0,0.0]
pos =3D [0.0,-3.0,0.0]
