I want to know if there is an option in MS Word, that a line in the text is highlighted by color or the style text changed when I put a ":" or a ";"... in the end of this line.

For example: when I write a line and then I put a ":" It will be highlighted by a green and when I put a "." and the line begins with a "-" it will be Bold ...

Not sure whether this is sufficiently 'automatic' but it might suit:

In the case of a line starting "-" and ending ".", Home, Replace, Find what: ^13[\-]*.^l #, Replace with: ^& with Use wildcards ticked and Format, Font, Font style set to Bold. This would need to be run as Replace All.

See also here for green highlighting etc.

(# Note though looking like one it is a lowercase L.)
