Can I assign different colors to each icon?

Not at this time (without custom CSS of course). We’re hoping to add this feature soon.

Can I display my icons with a shortcode?

Not by default, but you can use a plugin like this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-shortcode/

It allows you to add the widget to an arbitrary widget area, and then you can call that widget using a shortcode elsewhere in your website.
