I wanna change the color white in my footage by using the From: color picker onto the white part and then when I select green in the To:, my white still remains white, however it changes the color closest to white into green. It just messes up my footage. Why on earth is this happening? lol Please help me :( I'm stuck here and I couldn't progress on my video works.

You question is a little bit confusing. Make it more clear.

To summarize, why I cannot change white color to other color using the Change to Color effect? It doesn't work for white, is it?

Oh I got it!

In the Effects Control menu, in Change to Color Effect use "Hue,Lightness and Saturation" instead of "Hue".

Then in Tolerance, Bring down Saturation 1% or 2%.

Though this will effect the overall color of your footage as it will affect the luminance value of other colors too.
