In this case, wouldn't you be better off with an external editor?
There are freeware editors that are 'syntax-aware' and would let you color
the different keywords (and even comments I infer) as you like it.
The effort of copying and pasting your code from this editor into the
Mathematica front-end would be smaller that that of manually coloring every
single comment, I guess.
You would work with two separated windows: one for coding and one for
running the code.

I wonder if there is any chance to automate te cutting and pasting into the
last selected mathematica notebook. This depends on the editor's capability
to issue external commands of course (no big deal as far as I know), but
also on mathematica's abilty to accept external commands (I never had to
worry about passing a text to a mathematica notebook from outside Mathematica, so I
haven't the slightest idea on how to do that).

My two cents.
