I'd like to exchange the black part with another color... say pink.

Ahh, whelp, I wasn't thinking the striking surface would be "painted" as opposed to needing some laquer to smooth the transition from painted to non-painted.
I'm thinking there is some sort of epoxy / resin on the club with the paint underneath (usually if at all) and the strike plate over top.. with the whole business smoothed over?
It's been a loooong time since I've seen clubs close up though, I'm talking my father's clubs something like 20yrs ago.
So, assuming what I0m imagining is right and the basic idea is similar to decorating eyeglass frames / lens edges or putting fancy designs on fingernails
You really shouldn't do this yourself. IF you do though, what you use for the decorative paint is less important than getting someone to layer some resin over it to keep everything smooth and aerodynamic.
DIY though, I'd say scuff club (sandpaper) so that the paint (whatever type) "sticks" better, paint, dip, buff (seems like that may be the trickiest part BUT a carpenter's wheel buffer would probably work, afix strike plate and buff again to be sure the plate and resin are smooth to each other (again, for interest of aerodynamics).
Hmm... a piano repair person probably would have the right kind of buffer also, the one we used in the lab for polishing lens edges was the same sort used to polish piano keys.
