I would like to learn how to program a indicator in Ninja 6.5.
I would like to take a std. MACD and have the lines change color when they cross the 0 line and I would like the Histogram to change color when it crosses the 0 line also.
Where is a good place to begin ?
As cory said, the best place to begin is by looking at the code for indicators you understand. Make minor changes and see how those changes affect the result. Remember to make a backup of any indicator before you make changes.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Either you rely on the solution shown below, or you would buy yourself a basic book on C# and install an editor. Microsoft Visual C# Express Edition and SharpDevelop are freeware. After having aquired some basic knowledge, you can proceed to modifying and then coding indicators.
You could also print out the NinjaTrader helpfile to get an overview of the methods supplied with Ninjascript.
