For example If I make svg icons that are grey and violet, when I change the global color scheme on wordpress, Is it possible to make it work so if the main color scheme was violet, and I change the global color from violet to yellow, the icons become grey and yellow, Is such thing possible?

Will SVG´s had to be in the HTML (php wordpress template) page for this or this can be CSS? Thanks

Yes, you can alter the colour of svg paths using css, BUT (and it's a big but, I cannot lie), only if the svg code is printed inline and not linked via an <img /> element.

For example (and this is just a line of css from one of my sites):

.logo g path { fill: #fff; }

Both g and path are svg elements, which is why you might not recognise them, and fill is the svg equivalent of background-color.
