I know you can make a colour picture into grayscale via PS, but didn't know you could make a gray image colour in it... *new info*

There is no program that will automatically transform black and white images into color images, however these programs make it easier to do manually, and I doubt that you want to do this. Sorry buddy. =\

Stop typing like a n00b!

Really photoshop is going to be your best bet for all your photo editing needs.

There ARE versions out there *cough* that are free.

Not to crush your dreams or anything but, if you don't know what Photoshop is.. the chances of you doing a good job on colouring those photos is very slim. There are professionals that colourize monochromatic photos if you want to look into that.. I'm seeing that as your best bet. But, keep in mind that it's not magic.. technology can't scan the image and find out what their skin tones looked like, the artist will have to use their imagination which won't be all that accurate... not that it's impossible for it to look good but, remember that it's not going to be real.. it'll be fake.
