this line:
local call `call' || bar _freq`j' rep78 , bcolor(gs`col')
should be:
local call `call' bar _freq`j' rep78 , bcolor(gs`col') ||

Yes. Just call -twoway bar- repeatedly with each colour you want.

Example:

sysuse auto, clear
contract rep78
separate _freq, by(rep78)

forval j = 1/5 {
       local col = 3 *  `j'
       local call `call' || bar _freq`j' rep78 , bcolor(gs`col')
}

twoway `call', ytitle(Frequency)
