I'm a foreigner in Malaysia. I already gave birth to my child on 4 October 2019. I am already married and got the marriage certificate with the father of my child on 8 October 2019. 

1. Can I get birth certificate (green color) for my child? 
2. Can I get identity card for my child?

1. With a Marriage Certificate, the birth certificate will be green in color.
2. Application of the MyKID is at the same time.

They gave me a pink color birth certificate. So, can I apply to change it to green color? And how to do it?

Under certain circumstances, you may be able to make an appeal at Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) within 1 month from issuance of the pink color birth certificate.

Honestly speaking, the last time I went to Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) was 15 years ago. So, I really do not know of any drastic changes in policies.

Does PERMONONAN SEKSYEN 13 mean my child has to apply for Malaysian citizenship, right?

My child has to apply for Malaysian citizenship, right?

100% correct. There are other terms and conditions. For your child to be able to successfully obtain citizenship before getting his National ID card at the age of 12, my personal advise to you is that your child must reside inside, study in Malaysia and has resided inside Malaysia for 10 years. These are actually Laws of Domicile which was never publicly and properly discuss.

Did Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) issue a MyKid (Malaysia Kad Identiti Diri) to your child?

Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) did not issue MyKid to my child.
