I like the idea of the caret guide (it helps see alignment in block structured code), but I would like to make its colour customizable, so that I can make the colour nearly the same as the background. As it is right now, the colour of the caret guide is very different from my choosen text area background, and it is very distracting to always see that big vertical line moving over the text area while one is typing. If I could choose the colour by myself, I would use one which is less obnoxious.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'caret guide'.
Fold guides, maybe?
As you mention, I have it just a slightly different color than the background. Helpful, but not distracting.

If so, try the Whitespace plug-in.
Between that and jEdit's [Utilities] - [Global options] - [Text area], you should be set.
