Is there a free version that can highlight and then print the document with colored highlights?

You should be able to do it in Adobe Reader. You just need to make a slight change to how it prints.

  • First, open a PDF file you want to test it with.
  • Click comment on the top right, and you can start the highlighter tool.
  • Make your highlights.
  • Then, when printing, be sure to click the drop down on the top right.
  • You could click the ‘summarize comments’ button; however, it is not really necessary as the drop down is set to include the comments (highlighting would count as comments).

As far as changing the color is concerned, after you make the highlight, on the left, you can right click the ‘comment/highlight’ and click ‘properties’, and change the color there. This, however, depends on which version of Adobe Reader you are using. The newest, XI or whatever has a highlight button.
