how if I have the shapefile off all us counties added to my TOC and all the shapes of the states, could I go in and individually change the color of each county to display the data I have collected?

You are looking for Symbology and particularly  Color Ramp

Perhaps a Unique color ramp

This is from Pro's help... an identical topic exists for arcmap.

Basics of symbology are located within the same area

The only problem I have then, It does this for every county in the U.S. or whatever I have selected by attribute, not the specific county I am clicking on. 

Best,

If you chose unique values, they would all get a unique color.  If you want a particular color for each one, then you would have to do it manually.  So reading a bit of some of the tutorials would help.
