First of all, punctuation man, punctuation.

As far as bikes in general go you can move and fire 1 weapon per rider, and this weapon can be heavy or rapidfire even up to full range and you can charge in the assault phase. For Ork Warbikes it means that you can move 12", fire your dakkaguns, and charge. You cannot fire both the dakkaguns and the slugga because that would be firing 2 weapons.

Warbikes cannot have the red paint upgrade, that's for vehicles only (vehicles in 40k terms mean they have an armor value). You'll see the red paint upgrade in teh unit description.

Correct, if you move more than 12" you cannot shoot or charge as it would be considered turbo-boosting (check the special abilities section). You would get a 4+ invuln save though, not that you usually need it on warbikers with their 4+ cover save.

If you move up to 12" with warbikers you can shoot your dakkaguns and then charge.

The red paint job upgrade is a vehicle thing. Bikes don't count as vehicles in 40k so they can't buy them.

There is a clear list of which upgrades you can buy for each unit in the army list. Red paint isn't an option for warbikers.

You can paint them any colour you like of course, it just won't make them go faster.

Course it will. Atleast the orcs will think so. And that's all that really matters, right?
(Seriously, just kidding.)
