I don't know if this will work for an imported PDF, but this is how you find and replace coloured text in a Publisher text frame:

In the Find and Replace panel, click the cog next to Find and choose Format:

In the Choose Format dialog, click Colour & Decorations and then Text fill:

Specify the CMYK values you want to find using the sliders, then click OK.

Back in the Find and Replace panel, click the Find button at the bottom to make sure it's working:

Then go through the same procedure in the Replace with box (click cog etc..., specify your replacement colour), and finally click Replace All

Hope this works - Publisher isn't primarily a PDF editor, it's a page layout program.

It should work, but I recall participating in a topic where it was found to work inconsistently. And, I seem to remember that it might have been necessary to use the color picker to sample the existing text color. But it's a vague memory, do I wouldn't trust it without some experimenting.

In fact, after opening a PDF and specifying CMYK when opening it, it's impossible to search a CMYK colour.
But searching RVB values using the sliders give result. I suppose we need to test searching RGB or CMYK, not only the document's specified profile.

I think that the only way to do it is to change the colour manually.
