Can you trade faction tokens of one color for another? The Rulebook says you can can trade 5 goods for one good. Not sure if you can trade anything for anything as long as more than 5 tokens don't get traded.

You can - that's why they have a price in the Town Hall.

As long as you either buy or sell only a single item, you're good.

Yes, and if it's a more expensive faction banner that you're trading away you can also gain the difference in cost in food/gems/coin.

I think being able to get the faction banner you need is one of the most helpful things about the town hall. So many times I'll go adventuring and be sure (given the story choice) that I'll get one colour banner (that I need for an artefact) and then end up with the wrong colour. If it wasn't for the town hall ability to swap them the game would feel too luck dependent.

Even more - you can concentrate on the search skill of your adventurers and gain coins and gems (instead of questing for banners).
Then you simply trade them for the necessary faction banners!
Also good to get the fourth banner for a chieftain...
