How many different dyes colors exist? Can they be all bought at the merchants or are there any specials/rare that could be obtained differently?

And finally, which equipment categories can be colored? Is this color permanent or can I apply another dye if I am not happy of the result?

This user, pasparla, has created on YouTube a useful playlist where he shows the complete dyes palette for each class (male/female): Dyes Palette Playlist –  Drake May 17 '12 at 15:49
    
A couple corrections: Bracers are not visible on the character model, and thus dye will not work on them. Legendary items cannot be dyed. –  user25865 May 21 '12 at 18:10
    
Also the monk specific head wear cannot be dyed (the beads and forehead ornaments) –  Codemonkey May 22 '12 at 13:06

Diablo 3 has shipped with 21 dyes, and 2 dyes exclusive to the collector's edition (Bottled Smoke and Bottled Cloud, listed as Beige and Pale on the above link). There is also 1 dye remover, that removes a previously dyed piece of equipment. All dyes can be dyed over each other without issue.

The collector's edition dyes are not consumed with use, but the regular dyes are.

Every visible piece of armor is dyeable, which means Shoulder, Chest, Pants, Boots, Hat, Gloves and Bracers (but not belts, amulets, rings, or weapons).
