I know how to do this via Terminal > Preferences, but this seems to require opening a new console. I'd like to change the background color on the current console. Is this possible?

Menu: Shell > Show Inspector (⌘I)

Double-click on the desired setting. Naturally you'll have to add your desired colour scheme using Preferences first.

You can create a command you can enter in Terminal like I suggested in a similar topic.
