Automate it: yes, go for custom agenda view.

Re: colors, one way is to put an effort on the task, and you'll see your
consumption regarding that cut-off value; whenever you're above it, your
clocked time becomes red.

Limitation: the effort is supposed to represent a big total or a daily amount
(see property ":CLOCK_MODELINE_TOTAL: today"). Though, there is no such thing
for a weekly limit.

Best regards,
