I have a .png image that was made for me.
It was made on a white background and i want to change the white to another color.
I have elements 2.0

I have fireworks as well if it's easier there.

I'd like to match the color with a web page #color.

Just open the PNG up, grab your paint bucket tool, select your foreground color by specifying a hex value, and click in the white. Nothing to it.

In your foreground color swatches. Click it. In the resulting dialog is a place to specify a hex value.
