On my motherboard there are different colored slots, Red and Yellow. I was under the impression that you would have to install the memory in DDR2_1 and then slot DDR2_2, but my manual for the motherboard says that the same brand memory should be installed in the same colored slots. Should I move the RAM over to match the color of slot DDR2_1, to DDR2_3?

The manual is correct
You will get better performance that way

Yes, your motherboard manual is correct. Doing this allows for dual channel memory, increasing performance.
