Yes you can put in standard 5th wheels hitch into late model Colorado/'Canyon, but Anderson makes a version that sits on universal rails (not goose neck). Anderson comes in about 100 pounds lighter then typical 5th wheel hitch.
Not likely anyone makes a 5th wheel tail gate as manufacture never anticipated anyone would tow a 5th wheel and aftermarket vendors likely see this as very small market which means very few sales, but I'm sure someone could make a custom one for you.
