so i downloaded one of the programs, and it works fine. But the stuff is in MDL format, and i dont have a converter to bring an MDL to a BLP.

MDL and MDX are model formats. BLP is a texture format. The models provides the shape and movement and the texture colors the outside of the model. To edit the hair style, you would need a model editing program. this or this should work. To edit the hair color and robe color, you would need a texturing tool. I'd suggest searching for a tutorial. The basic idea is to take BLP, convert to TGA (a format that many image programs can edit), edit that file, and then convert back to BLP.
