Hello @Jack Nolddor _Sweet Bananas_ ,
Thank you for this, I was able to do this and it looks a lot better now.
For others, if you are not sure where to make changes, I did it in https://SITE-URL/secure/admin/ViewStatuses.jspa -> Statuses -> Click on edit and add emoji from the portal mentioned above as per your requirement.
I far as I know you cannot do what you are asking for without an add-on.
The background color of the Status in Jira is controlled byt the Category assigned to the particular Status value. There are only three Categories, thus only three colors. Those being 'To Do' (grey), 'In Progress' (blue) or 'Done' (green).
