No Duo! Do not even Mention Umbridge around me!!

That's what I was thinking. By the way, Delores Umbridge is Dorothea Omber in Dutch, if I remember correctly.

Can someone tell me why it was wrong to spell this as "Ze draagt roze kleren"? Ze v Zij?

You probably had a "type what you hear" exercise. Then you have to recognize that it's "zij". Otherwise both "ze" and "zij" are fine. In spoken Dutch, you would normally use "ze", and only if you put emphasis on it, it becomes "zij".

Weird, I wrote kleuren instead of kleren, and it accepted and didn't even tell me about the mistake.

is roze always pink for colour I used rose which is can also be a colour in English but it was marked as wrong. Could it not be 'She wears rose clothes'

you really have to say/write: roze. The pronunciation here is not right. You have to say de 'o' like in f.e. 'lost'
