No. Only solid grayscale colors are supported.

Is possibile use canvas.SetLayer = 0 with background image and canvas.SetLayer = 1 with screen? This method not set background image?

No. Assuming your "canvas" is an roImageCanvas, there's no way to add a screen to a layer on a canvas, only images, text, or solid colors.

A possible solution could be developing your own gridScreen using roScreen, I don't remember the name of the channel, but I am pretty sure that someone has done it before to add custom UI mingled with gridscreen, nonetheless it would be an overkill for your purpose.
