At this point, I believe that you have to quit and restart Cadence in
order to be able to use your new technology library. Please let me
know if you find a better way.

Select a layer and edit the color and pattern as you desire.
File -> Save
If you call the file display.drf and save it in your Cadence start directory (e.g. ~/cadence/display.drf), it will automatically load whenever you start Cadence. Otherwise, you will have to load it yourself (File -> Load) later on.
CIW -> Technology File -> Edit Layers
Technology Library: your_library_name
Select a layer and click "Edit"
To change the color and stipple pattern, choose a different display packet under the Display Resources heading (e.g. METAL, goldX, ...)
To edit another layer, unselect the current layer in the "Layer Purpose
Pair Editor" window, and select the next layer. A selected layer
is surrounded by a thin box. It can be quite difficult to see if
a layer is selected.
The following settings convert the layout to a micron scale (i.e. 1.0 in the layout equals 1micron in the exported file).
Scale UU/DBU: 0.001
