Highlights merely overlays a colour, with a degree of transparency. I don't believe we can recolour the roads -- though we might be able to put some colour overtop to get it close to the FC map colours. Alternatively, we don't set transparency, and it blocks out street names...
I'm also assuming you mean that it basically colours the Waze map to match the colour scheme on the FC map, let's start with one state -- if you get me the colours (in HTML #xxxxxx format), I can look at making something simple (it would be a separate script) that adds that overlay. Once we have it working for one state, we could look at expanding it out.
Oh, some other hurdles: it's not a 1:1 match from type to class; a Waze Freeway can be in FC either Interstate or Other Freeway, for example. Also, some states color rural classes differently than urban (others use the same colors, but dashed lines, which is no big deal).
Without further ado, here are the colors for two sample states – Louisiana and Michigan
Freeway: #007aff (Interstate) and #ffba00 (Fwy/Exp)
Major Highway: #ff3511 (Principal Arterial)
Minor Highway: #39ad00 (Minor Arterial)
Primary Street: #be3eec (Major Collector) and #ffff3e (Minor Collector)
Freeway: #1474fb (Interstate) and #a821e3 (Other Freeway)
Major Highway: #f73723 (Other Principal Arterial)
Minor Highway: #885a46 (Minor Arterial)
Primary Street: #fda929 (Major Collector) and #3da61c (Minor Collector)
Not sure what to do about FW and PS; maybe two alternating colors?
