I have various WMS map layers showing state/province capitals and various lower level administration (eg. district) head quarters.

I want to demarcate the state capitals and district head quaters using colors or something else. By default both are in red.

I am using geoserver with openlayers.

Is this even possible, since I have done some searches, but it results only in stylization of vector layers; not WMS layers.

You should use stylization on server side. I hope this tutorial will be hepful.
