I'm not sure what you mean by "the presence of a solution." If the metal is simple dissolved in water (in the form of a metal salt for instance), than no, the flame test will still work fine. If you mean that there are other things present in the solution, then each element will still make the same color in the flame, but because the mixture of elements will provide a mixture of colors, it will be quite difficult to determine what is present in the mix (especially because of the way colors can combine to give new colors).

How can chemical reactions produce color change?

Simply put, the products are a different color from the reactants. For example, when copper reacts with a silver nitrate solution it turns the solution from colorless to blue. This is because while the silver ions (Ag+) do not affect the solution while the copper ions (Cu2+) released by the reaction are blue in the presence of water.
