I understand that there is a specific word for "light green" = λαχανί, wouldn´t it be acceptable to use ανοιχτό πράσινο? Thanks.

We could have but opted for the more authentic. We'll try to add it as a translation to the Eng.

No, colors in -ί do not decline, unless you choose to use the very colloqual forms λαχανής, λαχανιά, λαχανί.
