This plugin is in all EasyEclipse distributions. You likely do not need to download and install it separately, unless you try to install it on an non-EasyEclipse distribution, which is not really supported.
Once installed, the Color Editor becomes the default editor for all supported file types. You can control it by selecting a file in Package Explorer view, or in the Navigator view, right-click on it and select Open With.
Colors can be selected in the Coloring Editor > Colors preference section, in the Windows > Preferences. It is also possible to define how tabs are handled.
File associations (selecting which editor opens each file type) can be controled in the General > Editors > File Associations preference section.
