That's a nice option in DOSBox, but unfortunately it is not (yet) available in PCem

Maybe PCem can emulate monitor color later.
Add 'Device Configure' of Hercules and MDA.

Display types are
RGB(It shows white from color monitor)
Green
Amber
White(It shows like an ivory color from actual white monochrome monitor)

and if PCem add to CGA monochrome mode too, we will choose CGA's display type
RGB, Composite, Green, Amber, White.

This link contains CGA monochrome patch from DOSBox.

Although I'm not a programmer, I don't think changing the output color from white to green or amber would be difficult at all!
We should wait to hear from Sarah what she thinks.

Yeah, should be a pretty trivial change.
