If I play as red (and nothing else) repetitively for years; will I gain an advantage over someone who has always aimed for playing as white (and nothing else) and has been preparing the same amount of time as me?

If red=black then...
I don't think there'd be any real advantage. Someone below 1800 rating will be making tactical blunders that nullify whatever color "expertise" they'd built up over the years.
