I've only just started using a spreadsheet and I'm wondering how to take all the data from cells of a certain color, then place that data in a single cell?

If by saying take all the data you mean using an aggregate function like sum or average or something similar, then you should use scripting functionality that Google Spreadsheet provides.

Please see the answer for similar question Sum data based on cell color in Google Spreadsheets

If you want to concatenate data from certain cells and copy the result to a specific cell, again you should use a script similar to one that is used to sum data based on cell color.
