Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I search on google but nothing so far, i want to make a map with colored segments between the crossroads around me. I didn't find this on the documentation so I'm ask here, is it even possible to trace multiple colored segment on OSM?

So my first step is to get all crossroads around me.

The second step is to trace the segment between all this crossroads.

Thanks in advance for the help

I think your first step would be to get the roads. For example, using Overpass. Then you want to split the ways at every crossroads (and possibly join ways that are split for some other reason than a crossroad). This is a pretty straightforward thing to do in GIS software. Then you will want to draw them in different colors. Depending on what you want to achieve (a static image, a worldwide always up to date service) there are very many ways to approach this.
